Avoid Conflict and Confrontation with the new
Face Mask Exemption Lanyard
We have been inundated with requests from our cardholders to create this lanyard and after careful consultation it is finally here. HM Government have said that "Some people may feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear a face covering." and with that in mind we created this lanyard.
If you would like a lanyard please tick the lanyard box at the end of the application form when applying for a new National Disability Card or National Carers Card. This is a self certification process and no extra evidence is required. The lanyard and holder cost £5 with free shipping.
Here are the UK Government Guidelines on who is exempt from wearing face coverings:
What's on the Face Mask Exempt Lanyard?
I understand why National Disability Cardholders may need them but why are you offering them to Carers?
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 it is only fair to also offer this lanyard to Carers that need them.
I don't have a National Disability Card or National Carers Card can I still get a lanyard?
No. These lanyards are exclusively for our cardholders.
I am already a cardholder can I have a lanyard?
Yes, however there is a fee of £5 per lanyard. Please apply here.
