Carers Card – Recognising Unpaid Carers Throughout Dorset

Carers Card

Thank you for visiting the official web site for the Carers Card. The card can be used by Carers who are signed up with the Carers Information Services in Dorset to obtain discounts for goods and services.  Carers can find a Directory of businesses who are offering discounts here http://www.mycarerscard.co.uk/directory/

The Directory will be regularly updated as businesses join the scheme, please check back often.

The scheme launched during Carers Week in June 2016. It has approximately 7,000 unpaid carers currently signed up who are receiving their free cards. They currently receive discounts from over 200 unique businesses who have already chosen to support this successful initiative.

This new initiative funded by Dorset County Council, Bournemouth Borough Council, The Borough of Poole and Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group aims to:

  • Support Carers to remain Safe and Healthy
  • Recognise the contribution Carers make
  • Support the development of Carer Friendly Communities
