Carers Cards

Carers Cards

 A carers card is a simple way of verifying your status as an unpaid Carer whenever you need to.


You can use it in situations where you are required to identify yourself as a Carer, such as:

    • When you are asked for proof you are a verified Carer.

    • In healthcare settings to be included in the conversation around medical planning for the person you care for.

    • With an employer if you want to be recognised as a working carer and request additional support due to your caring role


With a UCSS Carers Card, discounts are available at:

Health activities across the city with Active Nation.

Hairdressing services at Haringtons Hairdressing, Bedford Place.
