Healthwatch Bury provides Repeat C-Card Service

This service is being offered to young people who already have a C-Card and who have attended a C-Card registration at another service. Repeat C-Card contacts would take a couple of minutes and a trained worker would take details of the young person and C-card number and record them on a C-Card monitoring form before handing out condoms.

The c-card scheme

The c-card is a condom distribution scheme for young people throughout Oldham, Rochdale and Bury. The scheme allows young people access to condoms for free in places easily accessible to them. The scheme also gives young people the chance to talk about their relationships and sexuality in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space, with a trained adviser.
