Carer ID - Carers UK Forum

Carer ID

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
I am new to caring & wonder what other carers use as ID to gain carer entrance to places?
Hello Christina

I wanted to wish you a warm welcome to the forum and to highlight some of the options for connecting with fellow carers and for getting support from Carers UK should you need it.

Carers UK are running online weekly meet ups for carers to take some time for themselves and chat to other carers. Feel free to join if you'd like to and there's no pressure to share anything you don't want to. I'm sure you'll find others in a similar position to yourself.

You can find information on how to register to our online meetups at the following pages:

Care for a Cuppa: - This social is a great way to have a little break if you are able to and spend some quality time talking to people who understand what you are going through right now. https://www.carersuk.org/help-and-advic ... ne-meetups

There is also Carers UK's helpline should you need advice or support - Our Telephone Helpline is available on 0808 808 7777 from Monday to Friday, 9am – 6pm or you can contact us by email (advice@carersuk.org)

with all good wishes
Ingrid
You shouldn't need to have ID if the person you are with is disabled. Who wants to see it? Things are getting better. If I'm going somewhere and buying tickets, I now just say "one disabled, one carer" and it's not challenged any more. My son isn't obviously disabled, but has LD due to brain damage at birth. We've been all over West Sussex this week!
