What's on the Carers Lanyard?


I don't have a National Carers Card can I still have a lanyard?

No. These lanyards are exclusively for National Carers Card cardholders.

I am already a cardholder can I have a lanyard?

Yes of course please apply here.

I'm a Carer, can I also have a Face Covering Exempt Lanyard?

In line with government guidance updated on 23rd July 2020 you are exempt “if you are travelling with or providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading to communicate”.


So if that applies to you, you can apply for a Face Covering Exempt Lanyard.
