Wiltshire group in appeal to give discounts to unpaid carers
6:00pm Saturday 7th December 2013 in Latest News
Carer Support Wiltshire is calling on local businesses to offer discounts to help thousands of unpaid carers, with the launch of a new passport scheme.
The Wiltshire Passport was introduced as a discount card for unpaid carers. So far around 50 businesses across Wiltshire, including salons, cafes and leisure centres, have signed up to offer special deals to carers with a passport.
Sue Crisfield, development manager at Carer Support Wiltshire, said: “The Wiltshire Passport gives businesses the opportunity to give something back to the local community and enables carers to save a little bit of money which could potentially make a lot of difference.”
