Condoms and C-Card
A C-Card is a scheme for under 25’s in Leeds to get free condoms. To register for a C-Card takes approx. 15 minutes. This is your opportunity to find out more about using condoms and other forms of contraception as well as other places you can use your c-card. It is also your chance to ask any questions about sex and relationships. You can take away condoms the same day as soon as you have registered
If you already have a C-Card you can use it at The Market Place and pick up condoms.
You can pick and choose your own condoms. We have different flavours, textures and sizes to suit everybody. We also have a choice of lubricant, Dams and Female condoms.
A pregnancy test takes approx. 20 mins. We offer confidential non-judgemental support before and after the test. It is a simple urine test and you find out the results that day. You will also be able to do a sexual health test and take away free condoms.
