C Card 1

What is the c-card Hertfordshire scheme?

C-card Hertfordshire is a sexual health scheme for young people. Whether you're a young man or a young woman, straight, gay or questioning, this scheme aims to help young people to:

  • Make the right CHOICES regarding relationships
  • Get free CONDOMS to prevent unplanned pregnancies and reduce Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
  • Get tested for CHLAMYDIA and other STIs
  • Understand the types of CONTRACEPTION available
  •  

YC Hertfordshire enables young people aged 13-19, to 24 for those with learning disabilities and for those leaving care to the age of 21, to access the C-Card scheme through the One Stop Shops and identified youth work projects.

When you register with this scheme you will be issued with a card which contains a unique ID number. You will then be able to use this to pick up free condoms from any registration or easy access point in Hertfordshire where you see the c-card logo.

The YC Hertfordshire Cheshunt One Stop Shop is a c-card registration and easy access (distribution) point.


There are also IT facilities available for you to use for research, developing CVs and searching for jobs and training.
