By joining the Carers' Passport service, you can support discounts for family carers and caring friends, and give back to your local community.

Every day, day after day, thousands of people give up their time to help friends and relatives who rely on them. Carers' Passport is your chance to give these amazing people something back. Here are just some of the testimonies we have received from businesses and carers who have signed up for the Passport:

"I just want to thank you for the Carers' Passport. I get absolutely no help whatsoever and this is the first. So grateful. Thank you to all at Carers in Hertfordshire for their work and kindness."

Carer Sarah Alexander from Hemel Hempstead

“Carers are amazing people and we feel it’s time you get something in return for all your hard work!”

Boots the Pharmacy – Queensway Store, Stevenage

“It’s great to be raising awareness of carers and to have so many businesses on board. Before there wasn’t much out there for us, but this card will give carers a new lease of life.”

Diane Day – Unpaid Carer

"I've been a carer for 10 years, so I know what it means. That's why I wholeheartedly support the Carers' Passport - it's a really worthwhile cause and I hope the community gets behind it." 

Michael Hearn - Stevenage Borough Councillor

Caring costs, and it is hard for carers to get out and do the things they want to do. With a discount from you, carers will have the chance to do something different as well as have a well-earned break from the stresses and strains of caring.

With us you can give something back to the community and help us reach more carers in need of support. We'd love to hear from you wherever you are!

If you can support carers by offering a discount or special offer, or would like to find out more, please call Karen Denny on 01992 58 69 69 or email
