Do you have an emergency plan in place to ensure the person you care for is looked after in your absence?
The Carers Emergency Card (CEC) scheme is an initiative run by Wiltshire Council and managed by Carer Support Wiltshire. It offers peace of mind and reassurance that things will be taken care of in case of accident or emergency. The card is available to carers aged 18 or over.
The best way to apply is using this online link: Carers Emergency Card Online Application. Alternatively, you can contact Carer Support Wiltshire on 0800 066 5068 for more information or to request a paper copy of the form.
For more information about the free scheme email Sam Hampton, Carers Emergency Card Administrator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0800 181 4118.
