Information for carers
We work with a range of organisations to offer discounts to carers who have a Carers Emergency Card. These are typically for 10 – 20% off and the number of discounts on offer is growing all the time.
- Remember to take your Carers Emergency Card with you.
- Check if you the person you care for needs to accompany you in order to receive a discount/benefit.
- Please let us know if you are aware of any changes to the discounts/benefits or know of any additional ones.
- We advise that you consider phoning in advance of your visit to clarify discounts as these can change from time to time.
Carers Support Centre is most appreciative of discounts offered by individuals and organisations, but cannot endorse any of the services provided. Please check your own requirements are met on booking or taking up an offer.

Information for businesses Over 4,500 Bristol & South Gloucestershire carers carry a Carers Emergency Card. The card is used in the event of the carer having an accident or emergency to ensure the person they look after receives vital help. Alongside this, the carer can also use their card to get discounts. We promote the Carers Emergency Card on behalf of Bristol & South Gloucestershire Councils.
We promote the discount scheme in community publications and through our social media channels. We also regularly feature businesses in Carers News (circulation 10,000).
Many businesses we speak to recognise how important a carer’s role is and they want to give something back to local carers. To find out more about joining the scheme use the contact form and we will be in touch.
