We sent Jon (who else?) on the search for free condoms, and it was way easier than we thought.

I’ve always wondered if there’s anything more embarrassing than buying condoms – plus the loan you have to take out to actually afford them. So when I heard about 4YP’s condom card scheme – and that people under the age of 25 could get condoms for free – I was pretty excited…

To get my free condoms I went to Brook’s drop in session at The Station in the centre of Bristol – find out more about Brook, and how to get to The Station here.
