Become a Carer Friendly Organisation
Show the community you care about Carers and unlock the benefits of attracting thousands of adults in the UK who are in a caring role to your organisation
We run the award-winning Carer Friendly ID Card and discount scheme that connects unpaid Carers that provides Carers with verified status and connects them to a wide-range of discounts and benefits. Unpaid Carers are amazing people who provide care for someone who couldn’t manage without them, due to age, frailty, disability, or physical or mental health issues. 1 in 8 adults in the UK are in a caring role.
The scheme gives Carers access to deals and discounts upon presentation of their Carer Friendly ID card. Many local and national organisations offer a special offer, discount or deal for Carer Friendly ID Card holders or include cardholders in their existing concession offers.

Why Carers Need Your Support
The caring role can be incredibly challenging, many Carers provide over 50 hours of care each week, often alongside their paid work. Having time out from the caring role and feeling supported and valued by the community is vital to Carer wellbeing. Which is why we ask that all offers are available to Carers on their own rather than for Carers who are accompanying the person they care for. It can be hard for Carers to get out and do the things they want to do. With a discount or offer from you, Carers will have the chance to feel good about taking time out and take a well-earned break from the stresses and strains of caring.
Help us help Carers to feel valued and to access deals or a discounts on their respite break from caring, so they can continue to stay happier and healthier and care for longer. Find out how you can join the community of Carer Friendly Organisations, below.
