The National Disability & Carers Card Scheme
The National Disability Card and National Carers Card allow quick and easy visual identification of carers and disabled people to help them show that they may require assistance.
The National Disability Card and National Carers Card scheme is a social enterprise for good that was launched by a family that cares for a disabled daughter with cystic fibrosis. We found that many carers and disabled people do not have any suitable identity documents (ID). The National Disability Card and National Carers Card were created in response to this current lack of ID availability in the UK for carers and disabled people. We are a family business based in Suffolk, England and will send your card as soon as your application is successful. We refund any unsuccessful applications immediately.
Exclusively for cardholders, we provide powerful, colourful lanyards to help send the right message when you need it most. All lanyards come with a rigid card holder for a perfect fit and can be ordered with your card application.
We are excited to announce that after an incredibly successful show at the NEC in Birmingham, we are planning on exhibiting again in 2024 and look forward to seeing so many of you again soon.
We often work with and advise organisations such as charities and care homes, and our experts are always ready to help with any questions, so do get in touch if you would like to

Social Enterprise for Good
We are committed to the following values in our governance document:
Diversity and inclusion is imperative. At least 50% of our workforce are people with disabilities. We think differently about disability and take action to improve how we recruit, retain and develop disabled people. We want to ensure that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations.
Environmentally Conscious. Our manufacturing laboratory is powered by solar and we recycle all of our waste. Additionally, we offer employees green pension funds to help protect the planet.
Supporting carers in the workplace. We have a Carers policy to address the needs of people with caring responsibilities and to give carers the ‘right to request’ flexible working. This policy emphasises the benefits of flexible working arrangements, balancing work and personal life and employment breaks.
The Coronation 2023:
Over the weekend of 6–8 May 2023, people from across the country came together to celebrate the Coronation with a myriad of special events. Numerous activities were organised by local community groups, organisations, and charities, including The Scouts, Royal Voluntary Service, National Trust, and RNLI. At DisabilityID, we held a range of Coronation celebrations for our team and thoroughly enjoyed the festivities.
The Queen's Platinum Jubilee 2022:
In memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, who made history as the first British monarch to commemorate 70 years on the throne. Her reign was emblematic of unity and inspiration, resonating with generations to come. We were honoured to participate in the Jubilee celebrations, hosting events that underscored the resilience and spirit of the disabled and caring communities, particularly in light of the challenges presented by the coronavirus pandemic.
