It is free to apply for a Carers Emergency Card.

Carers carry a card which shows their name, a unique identification number and an emergency phone number. If you have an accident/emergency then the card can be used to alert a 24-hour emergency call centre that the person you care for needs help. Steps are then taken to ensure the safety of the person cared for.

“Thanks once again for an outstanding level of support and the much-needed peace of mind your service provides.


Carers who have a card can also use it for a variety of discounts.
