Emergency Card Scheme

What is the Carers Emergency Card Scheme?

If you look after your partner, disabled child, relative or friend who relies on your support you could receive a carer's emergency card. If you were involved in an incident, accident or emergency, then you, another person or emergency services would use this card to contact the 24 hour telephone response service to make sure the person you care for is safe and well.

By caring one you can be confident that the person you care for won't be left without the support they need.

It is free to any carer who lives in the borough of Knowsley

The card is the same size as a credit card.

There is no personal information on the card just a reference number and the telephone number of the 24 hour response centre.

How does it work?

Firstly, you must register with Knowsley Carers Centre and you will be sent an application form for you to detail your action plan in the event of an emergency.
