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 a carer has an accident/emergency then the card can be used to alert a 24 hour emergency call centre that the person they care for needs help. Steps are then taken to ensure the safety of the person cared for.

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