Carers Emergency Card

People caring for someone over the age of 18 can sign up to get a carer’s emergency card. This will ensure that the cared for person will be safe if you’re caught up in an emergency. A leaflet for sharing with any carers you are aware of is included in the appendices. The leaflet and the form to sign up for a carers emergency card, are available on the Norfolk County Council website.
