Support for carers in Swansea

Emergency card

A free carer’s emergency card is available in each local authority area. If a carer is taken ill or involved in an accident, this alerts the emergency services to the carer’s caring responsibilities and provides a number for them to call. In Bridgend and Swansea, this can be obtained from the local Carers Centre. In Neath Port Talbot, the card is provided following a carer’s assessment.
