About the scheme

Carers are issued with a credit card sized card. The carer carries it at all times, so that it can be used as an instant source of identification in case of accident or sudden illness.

The card does not have any personal details on it, only a unique registration number and the telephone number of the central help line.

In an emergency situation anyone can telephone the number on the card and quote the unique registration number printed on the card. The contact centre uses the registration number to easily access the carers pre-arranged emergency plan and puts it into action.

This free service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
