Event description

Description

What is c-card?


The c-card scheme enables young people aged 13 - 24 to access safer-sex resources (including condoms, lube and dental dams) free of charge from a number of outlets across the county.


Any individual registering young people to the c-card scheme must have attedned training before they can issue condoms and other safer-sex resources. An organisation may have several c-card trained members of staff (e.g. pharmacies, colleges, schools, hostels, youth clubs) to ensure that condoms and advice can be provided at all times, or a professional who works with young people at various sites (e.g. social workers, young people's workers, community nurse) may choose to register so that they can offer the service via a number of different venues.

Participants will learn how to:

  1. Consider safeguarding, Fraser competence and the law with respect to young people
  2. Discuss issues concerning sexuality and gender
  3. Register young people to the c-card scheme
