We have some great news to share with you. Forward Carers has worked with Birmingham City Council’s Commissioning and Resilience teams to implement dedicated supermarket shopping hours for carers across Birmingham.
A number of supermarkets in specific areas of the city are now welcoming Carers as part of the vulnerable /elderly shopping hours. Our Carer’s Card can be used for ID to access supermarkets’ dedicated shopping hours for Carers, as well as proof of Carer’s Allowance or a formal letter from the NHS/Birmingham City Council or Birmingham Carers Hub.
Here is the full list of supermarkets, locations and shopping times. Please note, that participating supermarkets are only in certain areas, not every ASDA, Tesco etc is taking part, so please check before you go. We hope this is a step in the right direction towards Forward Carers creating #CarerFriendlyBrum.
