Family Carers Card

Do you provide care for a family member or friend?

You may be eligible for a carers’ card. Carers’ cards help make others aware that someone vulnerable is dependent upon you. Having a carers’ card ban be useful if you need support or assistance when you are out and about.

Carers’ cards are free for unpaid carers of all ages and can be used across Reading, West Berkshire and Wokingham.

The cards are available from a local charity for carers, Tuvida.

Tuvida can also help to create an ’emergency plan’ setting out who should be contacted if you become unwell, delayed or involved in an accident and emergency support is needed for the person you care for. Details of the person you have nominated in the event of an emergency will be added to the back of the card.

To find out more and to apply for a card, contact Tuvida’s Berkshire Carers Hub on 0118 324 7333 or email
