About The NHS Freedoms Shop

The Freedoms Shop is an NHS sexual health promotion initiative run by Central and North West London Foundation Trust (CNWL).

Because the Freedoms Shop purchases such large numbers of condoms to supply NHS trusts and GPs across the UK, we have been able to negotiate huge discounts on prices. In 2003, we decided to offer our wide selection of high-quality, low-price condoms and lubricants to the general public. With no profit motive, we have been able to pass these great savings onto all of our customers – giving more people access to trusted condom brands at an affordable price.

A huge selection of condoms from respected manufacturers in a range of different sizes and styles can all be found at a low price on the Freedoms Shop.

The Freedoms Shop has now partnered with the GMI Partnership to continue to deliver London-wide HIV prevention services for men who have sex with men (MSM). Commissioned by the London Borough of Lambeth on behalf of all London Boroughs, the London HIV Prevention Programme (LHPP) funds the Freedoms Shop to deliver 1.5 million free condoms and lube per year to MSM venues across London. It also funds the GMI Partnership to deliver face to face outreach in gay venues and at events across London and via online social media platforms.

We work closely with Do It London, a safer sex initiative aimed at increasing the rate of HIV testing and improving the sex life of the capital.

In 2015, Freedoms Shop started stocking a selection of home sampling and home testing kits for STIs. These revolutionary kits have been developed to simplify the process of helping at-risk individuals establish whether they have contracted a range of sexually transmitted infections.

The sampling kits can help identify HIV, gonorrhoea, chlamydia, syphilis and hepatitis B and C – users simply have to provide a sample using the kit provided by Freedoms Shop and post them to the address supplied. The results will be quickly provided via text or phone.

The testing kits are even easier; the BioSure HIV Self Test will immediately identify your HIV status with no need to send off any samples or forms.

This is just part of the Freedoms Shop’s ongoing dedication to providing exceptional sexual health care – before and after sexual contact.
