Sexual Health

We offer lots of Sexual Health services at the Health and Wellbeing Centre. We work closely with Spectrum Community Health to provide a high standard range of sexual health services, support and guidance.

C-card/Condom Service

We support the C-card scheme at Barnsley College. The scheme offers free contraception for those aged between 16-25.

You can sign up for a C-Card at the Health and Wellbeing Centre, this card can be used at the Health and Wellbeing Centre, any sexual health clinic and pharmacy that has the C-card scheme in place to collect free contraception. When signing up for the scheme a trained professional will have a small conversation regarding the safety of using the card and discuss where you can collect free contraception.

Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) Testing

We offer free postal Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea testing kits. Each kit is delivered in a unmarked envelope with instructions on how to complete the test and how to pack it for free return postage. You can also collect a testing kit at the Health and Wellbeing Centre.
