All you need to do is be a registered carer with Signpost and apply for the Connecting Carers Card. All carers who are currently active on our database have been contacted and provided with a registration form. If you think you may have slipped through the net and not received one, please get in touch. Some people still need to provide additional emergency contact details or a photograph and we’re always in the process of chasing these up to make sure everybody who would like a card receives one.
If you’re not yet registered with Signpost please register here.
If you would like to apply for a Connecting Carers Card, please complete the form to the right.
You can find a list of the businesses on our website here. A brochure will also be sent out to carers, along with their cards. It’s a fairly small list at the moment – however we hope to add more and more businesses and services – this scheme can grow and grow! If you have an idea or a contact for a business/service that would be willing to offer a deal or discount for Stockport carers, please let us know!
Thank you to Stockport Together and the Equity Foundation who have made it possible for us to launch this card in Stockport. This is just the beginning and we hope, in time it will grow to form the basis of a Stockport Carers Passport which will give carers more recognition and support across the borough.
Like many organisations, we are experiencing increased demand for our services alongside reduced funding and donations. To enable our team to work as effectively and efficiently as possible, we have taken the difficult decision to close our phone lines from 1pm, Monday – Friday.
If you do call us in the afternoon, please do leave a message with your name, number and a summary of your enquiry. Our colleagues will be checking voicemails throughout the afternoon and will call you back as soon as possible. This will be within 2 working days. Alternatively, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, and thank you in advance for your understanding.
