It’s estimated there are over 19,300 people in Hackney providing care for a relative or friend. We believe every one of those people deserves the support necessary to thrive in their role.

Hackney Carer's Discount Card

The London Borough of Hackney in partnership with local businesses, have introduced a Hackney Carers Discount Card to encourage the Hackney community to do more to support and recognise the invaluable contributions of carers in Hackney.

The card is FREE and available to carers who are:

  • aged 18 and over
  • are unpaid for their caring role (note that “unpaid” includes those carers receiving Carers Allowance or other benefits relating to their caring role
  • are registered with Carers First

What are the benefits?

The card entitles cardholders to an agreed reduction in the cost of a service or good at participating businesses who decide the size and type of the discount (i.e. percentage or cash reduction).

Carers with the discount card will be offered the agreed discount on presentation of the card.

Discounts include, some Hackney retailers and also leisure centres and alternative therapists. Many local retailers are participating in the scheme including pharmacies, a florist, cafes and restaurant, the Rio Cinema, opticians, jewellers and many more.


You’ll also be able to take advantage of concessionary rates at participating Hackney leisure centres. Leisure centre staff will register you as a ‘Wellness member’.
