How to get a C Card
To get a C Card you need to attend a registration point and go through a registration with a trained C Card worker. The trained worker will have a discussion with you about a range of things including sex, STIs, pregnancy, relationships and how to use a condom.
Once this is complete and the worker feels you are ready for a C Card you will be given a C Card with your personal ID number and can start accessing free condoms and lubes.
