Emergency card

The Carers Emergency Card is a free service. It is for carers who live with the person they care for

or visit them regularly at their home.

Carers carry this card in their purse or wallet. Your card identifies you as a carer, shows your name, a unique identification number and an emergency telephone number. If you have an accident/emergency or you are taken seriously ill, the card can be used to alert a 24 hour Emergency Call Centre that the person you care for needs help.

If the person you care for lives within the South Gloucestershire Council area please contact Carers Support Centre on CarersLine 0117 965 2200 or email carersline@carerssupportcentre.org.uk

If the person you care for lives within the Bristol City Council area please contact Care Direct on 0117 922 2700 or email  adult.care@bristol.gov.uk

There are some added benefits to the Carers Emergency Card including discounts in shops and cafes, on therapies or attractions.  You can find more information on Carers Emergency Card discounts here or if you would like to speak to someone please contact Carers Support Centre on CarersLine 0117 965 2200.
