Get it On condom distribution

Get it On (GIO) is the condom distribution scheme running across Hampshire, Portsmouth and Southampton. Anyone under 25 can get free condoms from lots of different organisations when they have a GIO C-Card.

A Get it On venue has professionals that have been trained to work with young people about their sexual health and relationships and who can provide young people with their GIO C-Card.

Type of venues that have signed up to the scheme include:

• Voluntary organisations
• Youth services
• Pharmacies (cannot issue C-Card)
• GP Surgeries

Becoming a GIO venue

Community venues who wish to join the scheme must have at least one trained professional. The trained worker will need to attend the RSE 1&2 training (or equivalent) in order to participate.

Organisations in Hampshire can attend training through the Hampshire Learning Zone.
