TEENAGERS from the age of 16 across Essex are able to get free condoms following the launch of an innovative new app.

The C-Card App which is hoped to revolutionise access to condoms for young people in Essex, allows 16 to 24-year-olds quick, discreet, free access to condoms.

The app, launched by Provide and commissioned by Essex County Council, is available for Android and Apple iOS and can be downloaded from the app stores.

Following a simple, secure registration process users are presented with three short videos providing important information on consent and the law, reducing the risk of getting a sexually transmitted infection and how to use a condom correctly.

This is followed by a short quiz that tests understanding of the key information covered.

Once the quiz is completed successfully users will be able to search for a convenient distribution venue and collect their supply of free condoms when they visit with a quick scan of a QR Code.

A laudable initiative from Essex County Council, for once.

So, does this leave a door open for free drugs for the users ? Free skunk for the puffers ? Free booze for the alcoholics ? and whatever else that the addicts of any persuasion may desire.
