Hundreds of carers have had their ID card issued but there are still thousands that haven't taken up the opportunity. Carers are finding them a useful form of photo ID to prove they are a carer.
Being a carer entitles you to free or reduced entry to a number of venues including cinemas and sports events..
Other uses can be:
- getting adjacent seating on flights, etc. without paying extra
- proving that a cared for person is cared for when they have a hidden disability and don't claim any benefits
- confirming you are a carer at your surgery when the person you care for has a different GP
