The idea for a Carer Card came from Carers in Harrow. Carers, community organisations and the council are all working to develop the card. Because the card is still in development some functions are not yet ready, so please be patient while we get it all working and let people know about it. We felt it was important that we get this out now so that Carers have something to use immediately. The discount scheme is not quite ready, but will be soon. While the card is in development please do give us your feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org. This card has to work for you and we welcome suggestions to improve any aspect of it! This card will be replacing the current red and white CESS card, that is no longer valid, so please contact us if you would like to switch over.
How can the Carer Card help you?
The Carer Card can help you in the following ways:
- Recognition: confirming status as a carer who is providing invaluable support to a vulnerable person
- Contingency: confirmation of who to contact in the event of an emergency
- Discounts: for the carer from local businesses as a thank you for all that you do
