If you are involved in an accident or emergency, the emergency services or others will use this card to contact Linkline, the 24-hour response service, to make sure the person you care for is looked after.

This is a card that you can keep with you when you are out and about. It has 24-hour response service number on it that you can call in an emergency.

By carrying one, ideally in your purse or wallet, you can be confident that in an emergency the person you care for won’t be left without the support they need. The card is free to all carers living in Lewisham.
