Our Carers’ Passport Discount Card is a fantastic resource for carers as it provides valued financial support through the savings, services and business offers, we have secured for you. It also helps carers feel recognised and valued, giving a real sense of identify with the photo identity card.
To date 8,780 passports have been issued to carers right across the county! 49% of them - 4,283 carers - are now accessing support or advice from Carers in Hertfordshire, for the first time.
There are currently more than 350 discounts/concessions available with the Carers’ Passport Service and companies signed up to support the passport include Butlins, Paradise Wildlife Park, Virgin Experience, plus many local businesses. The deals are listed here in the lastest pdf Carers Passport Offers Booklet (8.86 MB) .
Karen Denny, Carers in Hertfordshire’s Project Officer, said:
"The feedback from carers has been overwhelming! With carers telling me that the financial benefits are making a really big difference to their lives. But, more importantly carers are taking a break from caring and popping out for a discounted coffee and cake or perhaps going along to their local spa/gym for some me time”
"We are always looking to build on the offer so if you have favourite shops, why not tell them all about this valuable carers service that they could join?”

Boots has decided to end its support for the Carers’ Passport Discount Card Service. As a result Boots is no longer offering the 10% discount in its Hertfordshire stores to unpaid carers who have a Carers’ Passport ID card.
A Boots spokesman said: “We understand that this may be disappointing, and we greatly value our relationship with carers in Hertfordshire, however we want to make sure that we have one scheme across the UK which is easily understood and open to all healthcare professionals and carers. We’d therefore like to invite members of Carers in Hertfordshire to join the Boots Pharmacy Advantage Club.”
We would like to thank Boots for its support to the Carers’ Passport Discount Card Service over the last three years.
If you want to get in touch with Boots about the matter or learn more about the Boots Pharmacy Advantage Club please call 03450 708 090, email or visit www.boots.com
