Bromley Healthcare’s Health Improvement Service is pleased to announce the launch of the C-Card condom vending machine at Bromley College. The machine dispenses free condoms for young people aged 16-24 years who have joined the London C-Card scheme.
This innovative development means that young people over the age of 16 who attend the college and have registered to the scheme will be able to access condoms in a discreet and confidential manner. It is thought that the C-Card scheme in Bromley has contributed to the lowest under 18 conception rates that the borough has ever had.
The launch will take place at Bromley College on Thursday 10th March between 12-2 pm. Health Improvement staff and Bromley College Student Liaison staff will be on hand to sign students up to the C-Card scheme and assist them in using the machine.
Our experienced practitioners will also be able to offer advice and support around practicing safe sex and accessing sexual health services.
