I keep on getting asked for one, but there is no such thing. I reckon it would be a great idea to get discounts for concerts and festivals etc.

Hi folks
I am new to the forum and this is something that I have been raising for a while. I know that Kent CC apparently offers a card which proves you are a carer. Anglesey also has a card (how I long to move there soon but Dad is proving to be a complete PITA - that's another story). Instead, I have to carry round my letter from the DWP which states that I receive Carer's Allowance. I find that intrusive. I see no reason why a card - with your photo (to prove it's you), your name and your NI number (which is unique to you and will also prove that you get Carer's Allowance if the place in question felt the need to check with the DWP) - is so damn difficult. Good grief; Vista Print (other printing services are available) could easy do one for a very small fee.
