The Carers card scheme offers carers discounts and concessions at retail and leisure venues throughout County Durham and Darlington.
The County Durham and Darlington Carers card, developed in partnership with Darlington Borough Council, the former NHS County Durham and Darlington and Durham County Council, recognises and rewards the support carers provide to their neighbours, friends and loved ones.
To receive discounts and concessions from businesses and organisations in the scheme, the carer will need to produce their Carers card.
