I Care Card Scheme - Saving Carers Money
Many carers face financial hardship as result of their caring role, either reducing their working hours or giving up work completely. There might also be additional costs such as heating or equipment costs to bear. In April 2013 we launched out ICare Card Scheme to help carer save money with the support of 42 businesses across Shropshire. We now have 150 carers who have joined the scheme and they have been making good use of their Icare Card at local businesses.
Grace Evans says "I save 10% at Sherwood Wholefoods in Market Drayton and go so often that I don't need to show my card! I save a few pounds each month so it all adds up."
Mrs Beech will be saving in excess of £100 a year with her I Care Card as she treats her family to a Fish and Chip supper every week at the Shawbury Fish & Chip Bar. She can also save on her Sunday Roasts with 10% off Cherrington Butchers.
