I Care Card

Powys iCare Card / Young Carers Card 

iCare Logo with jigsaw in the i 2.png

Would a card that identifies you as a Carer or a young carer help you?

If so, the Powys iCare card may be for you. 

Carers often have to:

  • Pick up prescriptions for the person they care for

  • Collect additional food for their loved ones

  • Make essential trips, just like paid care workers

The ID could ensure you get priority treatment in shops and pharmacies.

If you would like to apply for an iCare Card, contact: carers@credu.cymru / 01597 823800
