Youths to get condom access cards
Youngsters in Calderdale are being urged to practise safe sex with the introduction of a "condom card".

After speaking to trained professionals teenagers will be given a "C-card" which they can take into designated shops to get free contraception.

School workshops will also be used to enforce the safe sex message of the Choices project.

Access to drop in centres are also being provided for youngsters to get confidential advice.
