The Carers Emergency Contact Scheme is for adults, caring for adults. It’s a free service, so the person you care for can be looked after if you have a personal crisis such as, an illness, accident or emergency.  Your plan is kept safe and available in an emergency. You are given:

  • help to write your emergency contact plan so they know what support the person you care for needs.
  • a card to carry so other people and emergency services, know you’re a carer and someone relies on you

In an emergency, your plan can be put into action. Even if you already have an emergency plan with a friend, relative or neighbour, it’s a good idea to register online for the Carers Emergency Card Scheme.
