Carers Discounts

Carer identification

When supporting someone you can access certain benefits, information, support and advice. Providing proof that you care for someone can be extremely useful when it’s required. This may be at a hospital, school, attraction, shop or even in an emergency.

Although our carers card provides identification it also supports you in a variety of other ways. Everything from wellbeing to discounts through our dedicated app.

In the case of an emergency

Your card can hold x2 'In Case of Emergency (ICE)' contact details which are an essential piece of information that can be used if you are taken ill or injured. Anyone that's shown or discovers the card has up to two contacts they can call.

A 'Carer's Emergency Plan' is an extremely useful document outlining key information about the person you care for. You can create your plan and share it within your Carer Circle (see below) and via your card by scanning the QR code.

* Creating a 'Carers Emergency Plan' is an optional feature

Personal support

We're here for you. Our app is designed to improve your well-being, coping skills, and more, to help you live a healthier life.

Your account includes a catalogue of support information; everything from guides to best practices. You can also create your very own 'Self-help care plan' for daily support.

Carer Circle

Your Carer Circle

Our 'Carer Circle' tool helps you organise your care by allowing you to add notes, tasks, appointments, medication lists as well as monitoring the wellbeing of the person you care for.

If you share the responsibility of caring with others then you can invite them into your Carer Circle. It makes the task of sharing responsibility easier by helping you work as a team. It’s an excellent way to be kept everyone up to date.

* Creating a 'Carer Circle' is an optional feature
