    . Carers passport 

    As part of Carers Rights day (Thursday 26th November) Leicestershire County Council is encouraging unpaid carers to apply for a Carers Passport to ensure they receive the right support at the right time as they continue with their valuable role.


    The identity card has been developed as a response to the difficulties and challenges which carers face, often on a daily basis, as well as giving them important recognition, particularly during the current pandemic.
    A Carers Passport is recognised across Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and is supported by VASL - Leicestershire Support for Carers and their partners in the city and Rutland.


    Carers who are already registered with Support for Carers will automatically receive their wallet-sized passport by post; they can also email the team to request a downloadable version for a phone or a lanyard if preferred.


    To apply for a Carers Passport, or for more information, please contact Support for Carers on 01858 468543 or visit: https://bit.ly/2KOgqgd.
