ID Card Launch

Knowsley Carers Centre will shortly begin issuing ID cards for carers. Lots of places offer concessions for carers and some shops even offer discounts. However, it can be a barrier trying to prove that you are a carer, especially if you are not getting any benefits in respect of your caring role.
You will need to arrange an appointment with Judy to attend one of our Centres in person with proof of your ID and have a photograph taken so the card can be issued. The ID cards will be valid for one year and there will be an annual renewal charge of £1. For more information, and to request your ID card, please call Judy on 0151 549 1412.
