As a Carer you need to know that if an emergency happens, replacement care will get sorted out speedily and efficiently.
Herefordshire Carers Support make sure Carers know where to get support in an emergency.
We recommend all Carers create an emergency plan, for you and the person you look after. Having a plan in place can help ease your worries if you are not able to care for the person you look after at any point in the future.

Herefordshire Carers Support believes that family Carers deserve a little extra in recognition of the valuable work they do.
The ‘I Count Card’, issued is intended to help family Carers identify themselves easily to obtain concessions, reduced or free membership, entry or goods.
Local businesses such as leisure centres, therapists and solicitors have signed up to the scheme and offer various discounts.
We are always working to increase the number of businesses supporting the Carers I Count Card scheme. If you use your card elsewhere or know of anyone who would like to join the scheme, please let us know and we’ll add it to the list.
