 Carers Leeds Emergency Card

This card is free of charge and is designed to be kept with a carer at all times, for example in a purse, bag, wallet, phone case or on a key ring. In an emergency carers can show someone the card so that they will know that someone else relies on them. The card will include contact details of someone who has agreed to step in and take over caring for the cared for person for a period of time. This will usually be family or friends.

Carers can request a Carers Leeds Emergency Card by completing an online form <https://carersleeds.us4.list-manage.com/track/click?u=27860ab2b8185d0189fb1222c&id=8ff3dafffd&e=72b37e9caa> . As well as receiving the Carers Leeds Emergency Card they will also be added to the Carers Leeds mailing list and will receive our regular Newsletter by email or post. More information on the Carers Leeds Emergency Card is available on this poster.

 Many things these days rely on technology – from online banking to appointments, and this can often be overwhelming at times. Our Digital Inclusion Project at Carers Leeds provides support on a one-to-one and group basis for carers who would like an introduction to digital technology or would like support in becoming more confident to use a device and its features.   More information on the Digital Inclusion project can be found on the following link
