Carer Card

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.

Update: Due to closures of businesses caused by Covid-19 some offers that were available may not be the same. We are in the process of updating the Carer Card offers including information about opening hours and discounts. If you have any questions about your Carer Card please email our Business Liaison Worker:

Emergency Card

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. As an example, if 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.

Then if you are involved in an emergency, the people named on the card can be contacted. They may be a friend, neighbour or relative and please remember to talk to them before you use their name on this card. For more details see our Plan for an Emergency.

How to get your Carer Card

The card is available to carers already registered with Sheffield Carers Centre and as an incentive for people to register for the first time. The card is available to young people who care by contacting Sheffield Young Carers.
