We are in the process of developing this site to include useful information and resources. Whether you are a health or social care provider, a voluntary organisation, an employer or a business there are things that you can do to identify and support Family Unpaid Carers that you come into contact with.
A Carer Passport is a record which identifies the carer in some way and sets out an offer of support. Carer Passports can be in range of settings: workplace, hospitals, schools, mental health trusts, the community, universities etc.
For example, the Herefordshire Carers Support (HCS) I Count Card is given to every carer who registers with Herefordshire Carers support. This card identifies the individual as a carer and also offers a range of discounts/benefits from local and national businesses.
If you provide a statutory service, are an employer, run a community group or have a business and want to recognise and support carers, please call 01432 356068 or email email@example.com to discuss how you can help.
