The Sheffield Carer Card has been developed to reward and recognise all the hard work you do as a carer. This card is for both young and adult carers. The Card offers discounts on a range of activities, products and services. It is the result of the generosity of local and national businesses who want to find a way to support carers and is part of our attempt to mobilise the city to work together to recognise the work carers do, help carers to connect with the services we offer and support a city-wide effort to make Sheffield much more carer-friendly.
From Yoga to Butlins, cleaners to cafes, we’ve brought together an amazing range of offers.
Please click on the categories on the left hand side of the page for full details. If you are on a mobile device click on the menu tab at the top left hand side of your screen.
More offers will be updated here regularly, so please keep checking this page! Every week businesses are coming on board with the Carer Card to offer discounts to carers. Here is just a taster of the range of products and services that will be available:
If you are a business and would like to support and connect with 1,000s of carers in Sheffield, contact Stephanie Lowe on 0114 278 8942 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The reverse of the Card is designed to be used in case of an emergency situation. You may worry about what would happen if something unexpectedly stopped you from looking after the person you care for if, for example, you were involved in an accident or became ill. This card would alert others to the fact that you are an unpaid carer. It provides space for you to fill in details of two emergency contacts, who can support the person you care for.
If you are incapacitated or involved in an emergency, the two contacts on the card can be called. They may be a friend, neighbour or relative. Talk to them before you put their name on this card.
