Free condoms

Brook Manchester

The C-Card gives you access to free condoms, internal condoms (femidoms) and lube from a number of outlets.
C-Card is free for young people 13 to 24 living or studying in Manchester.  

How does C-Card work?


C-Card is a new service in Manchester which means there are currently limited locations where you can pick up free condoms using the C-Card. However, you can still sign up and check back here to find out about new locations as they’re added.

In the meantime, you can also pick up free condoms from the following locations:

  • Brook Manchester
  • Manchester college
  • BIMM
  • Access to Music
  • Manchester Hide Out
  • Hideaway
  • Connell Sixth Form College
  • The Foyer

To be able to use the free condom scheme, you will first need to register for a C-Card. 

If you are aged 16 or over, you can register online for a digital C-Card. If you are under 16, or prefer not to use online registration, you can register at a C-Card outlet where you will get a physical C-Card to show when you pick up free condoms using the C-Card scheme.

Register online

Once registered, you will be able to collect free condoms from locations that have signed up to C-Card in Manchester such as colleges, schools, youth clubs, mental health services. Outlets will let you know they are part of the scheme by displaying the Brook logo in their window.
