Carers Emergency Card

Emergency cards

It’s never been more important to have a Carers Emergency Card. If you don’t have one, make sure you register for one now.

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 or is taken seriously ill, 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.

Bristol cards are administered by Bristol City Council. Apply for this card if the person you care for pays council tax to Bristol City council.
