Newcastle Emergency Carer’s Card Scheme

British Red Cross runs the Emergency Carer’s Card Scheme in Newcastle.  This scheme offers:

  • emergency support for someone if you suddenly find you cannot return or visit
  • a quick response in the event of a personal crisis
  • support at home when a carer needs to attend a personal appointment
  • support to draw up an emergency contact plan

Once you register you will receive a card that informs GP or health staff that you are a carer so they can keep your loved one/someone you look after informed when something has gone wrong.

See British Red Cross entry for more information on services.
