The London Borough of Newham and Newham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), in partnership with local businesses, have introduced a Newham Carers Discount Card to encourage the Newham community to do more to support and recognise the invaluable contributions of carers in Newham.
The card is 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 or Newham Council
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, Newham Leisure Centres (Carers will need to presents their discount card to be entitled to the ‘Get Active’ card on concessionary activity rates), Catto Pharmacy, Hi-Tech Appliances, Jay Wills Ltd, Munro Pharmacy and more.
The card is free to carers and only one will be issued per household.
