Carers card

If you are a carer you can now benefit from a carer card; a card which officially identifies you as a carer and that should be carried by you at all times. There is no charge for the card.

The card has 2 main purposes.

  • To notify emergency services that someone you are responsible for needs support, should something happen to you.
  • To get you discounted access to local health and wellbeing services, as well as with selected local shops and businesses.

Carers Card example. A red card with large font showing 'I am a carer. I look after someone who depends on me. In an emergency please call'
