Whether you are 16 or 60, in order for sex to be legal it MUST be consenting, meaning, everyone who is having sex WANTS to have sex and says they do.
The legal age for sex in the UK is 16 years, however, if you are under 16 years the worker who is registering you won’t automatically report you to any authority for having sex. They will ask you some questions to ensure you are safe and encourage you to talk to them in the future. They will ask you questions like:
If the worker feels confident you or your partner is safe they will register you and give you condoms and lubes.
The C-Card Scheme is a confidential service. This means that what you say to any of the workers will, in most cases, stay between you and the worker. HOWEVER, if the worker feels that what you are telling them shows you or someone else is at risk from serious harm from any sort of abuse, they will have to tell other authorities in order to protect you or the other person in the future. They will inform you of this course of action and work with you to stop the abuse from happening in the future.
