What is the Carer Card?

Carer Card

 

More than 140,000 primary carers in Victoria play a critical role supporting others in the community, including people with a disability or mental illness, children in foster care, and an increasing number of frail aged.

The Carer Card is symbolic and financial recognition of the value of carers to our society. The card will provide carers with:

  • a wide range of discounts and benefits on offer from businesses, the local government and community organisations
  • free travel on public transport on a Sunday plus two return off-peak travel vouchers each year.
