Register for our FREE carer meds management and wellbeing service to have your prescriptions delivered to your door by our friendly team. You no longer have to worry about running out of medication for yourself or your family. For the price of your normal prescription charge (including free if you don’t pay for prescriptions), your prescriptions will be collected from your GP surgery and filled for you. Our drivers will deliver your medication to your home at a time that suits you, so you don’t even have to wait in for the delivery.
If you are on a repeat prescription then it’s just 3 simple steps…
Register online by clicking here or by phone on 01827 302 260 quoting ‘I am a carer’.
A Liaison Officer will contact you before your prescription is due (yes no need to remember!) to arrange delivery.
Your prescription will be dropped off by a trained driver to your chosen address and at your chosen time.
The CEA card is a national concessionary card developed by the UK Cinemas’ Association for UK cinemas. It guarantees you free entry to any screening when you accompany the person you care for. Although many cinemas do offer free entry for carers, this is at the discretion of the venue, unless you can produce a CEA card. Unfortunately, you still have to pay for the popcorn!
To order your card you will need to meet the registration criteria and pay a £6 fee. Your card is then valid for free entry at all participating cinemas. For full FAQs and to apply for your CEA Card
We understand that in your caring role you may encounter situations you don’t feel prepared for. And that as your role changes, the skills you need to carry it out may change too. Our two free training courses– First Aid For Carers and Moving and Handling the Person You Care For -will give you the skills you need to carry out your role safely and with confidence. Both courses are suitable whether you care for an adult or child.
To book your place on one of our Birmingham courses, please register below.
We will shortly be offering these training courses in locations across the Black Country. To register your interest and to be the first to hear about these courses, please call 0121 442 2944 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Courses are run in partnership between Forward Carers and Midland Mencap. Courses in the Black Country are funded by the Big Lottery.
