Young and Adult Carers look after someone who is ill or disabled, often a family member, unpaid.
The work unpaid Carers do is incredibly important and never more than during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Carers often have to:
Pick up prescriptions for the person they Care for
Collect additional food for their loved ones
Make essential trips, just like paid care workers
The ID could ensure you get priority treatment in shops and pharmacies.
Do you feel a form of ID would help you as a Carer in situations like these?
If you are a Carer and would like to apply for your own iCare Card or if you have any thoughts you’d like to share, please do get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org / 01597 823800.
