Due to COVID-19, Plymouth’s regular C-Card services are heavily reduced and you may not be able to get to the locations you would normally visit to get C-Card or other free condom services.
The Eddystone Trust, SHiP (Sexual Health in Plymouth) at Derriford and The Zone have set up a temporary 'Condoms by Post' service for those who have no other way of accessing free condoms or buying condoms. The service provides free condoms, through the post, to 16 - 25-year olds in Plymouth.
What is a C-Card?
The C-Card scheme is open to people under the age of 25, with a card you can collect free contraception from over 60 locations in Plymouth. Find out more.
Condoms by Post and the C-Card Starter Pack
A C-Card starter pack is made up of; two regular condoms, one extra safe, one ribbed and dotted, one flavoured and one trim (latex-free condoms are also available), and three packets of lube.
To order your starter pack to be sent (discretely) to your home address call 07867 358187 between 9am - 5pm, Monday - Friday.
