Shropshire RCC Carers Support Service
A Shrewsbury based charity supporting unpaid carers. Shropshire RCC Carers Support Service is charity that has a network of volunteers who support people who are caring for a family member or friend.
The Icare Card Scheme was launched in April 2013 by Shropshire RCC’s Carer Support Service, a local charity and entitles carers registered with the service to a range of discounts with local businesses throughout the county. Businesses include: cinemas, colleges, cafes, takeaways, delicatessen, osteopath, health food shops, butcher, hairdressers, beauticians, gift shops, opticians and many more.
Carers, aged 18 or over, who are caring for an adult and are registered with Shropshire RCC Carers Support Service can apply for a free Icare Card. A carer is someone who provides regular, unpaid help for a relative, friend or neighbour who is frail, disabled or suffers from an illness.
If you are a business and are interested in joining the scheme or if you are a carer and want to register with our service to be eligible to join the scheme, please contact Julie Alanthwaite on 01743 341995.
