The eC-Card App allows young people aged 16-24, quick, discreet, free access to condoms.

The App is available for Android and Apple iOS and can be downloaded from the App stores from today (Monday 30 July).

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 (STI) 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.

Find out more and download the eC-Card App now.
