The Carers Passport is free and available for Carers, aged 18 or over, who provide care for a Plymouth resident, of any age.
Our Family and Friend Carer Passport helps:
We are making a
commitment to you as a carer to recognise and value the support you provide,
the expertise you bring and the needs you have in terms of your own health and
welfare. Research shows that unpaid carers of family or friends routinely
neglect their own health and care needs in order to prioritise the needs of the
person they care for. We will help Family and Friend carers to access the
support you need to maintain good physical and mental wellbeing for yourself.
This will enable you to continue your caring role and, when appropriate, we can
help you relinquish some aspects of your caring role. For further information
and to download the Carers Passport Booklet please click this link to Plymouth Online Directory
The passport also offers discounts on a range of activities across the city to help you to look after your own health and wellbeing because if you look after someone, it’s important to look after yourself too. Please see the list of businesses who are currently offering discounts below.
We are looking for local businesses and individuals who may be willing to offer discounts/concessions on their products and services to carers; a great way to support local carers and local businesses. For further information, please email email@example.com.
