Forth Valley Carers Card

Forth Valley Carers Card

The Forth Valley Carers Card is a carer identification card that has been developed by local carers, Carers Centres, NHS Forth Valley and local authorities to ensure that carers are more easily identified by health and social care professionals and recognised and valued as equal partners in care.

Carers who would like to be issued with a Carers Card should contact their local Carers Centre.

Digital Carers Card for the duration of COVID-19

Since the COVID-19 lockdown began, we have been inundated with requests for Carers Cards. Normally, our personalised credit card style Forth Valley Carers Cards are produced at the Carers Centre and posted out to carers, however, this is no longer an option with staff working from home.

We recognise the benefits that having a Carers Card can bring at this time, and so we have been working hard behind the scenes to develop an alternative to the physical card.

Carers who would like a Carers Card, and who have not had one previously, will now be issued with a digital Carers Card, specifically designed to be used for the duration of the COVID-19 lockdown.
