Carers Emergency Card

Ensuring the safety of the person you care for if something happens to you.

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.

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

Apply for this card if the person you care for’s council tax is paid to Bristol City Council. Please note these cards are administered by Bristol City Council.

Or request a paper copy from Care Direct at Bristol City Council: 0117 922 2700
