What is a Carers Access Card?
Carers play a vital role in our community, and here at Hartlepool Carers we feel your role should be valued and rewarded. We are offering carers the opportunity to register for a Carer Access Card.
The card is valid for three years and allows registered carers to access a host of different offers and discounts from businesses and services around the town who recognise the role of carers.
These companies will be easily identified as Carer Access Card partners and we expect new businesses to join the scheme regularly.
The card can also be used as a tool by which carers can identify themselves easily, without having to repeatedly explain their caring role.
If you are a carer the card will entitle you to:
- Discounts at participating businesses
- Access information to help you with caring
- Other support regarding caring
- The chance to join our network and connect with other carers
