Unlike the Companion Card, you can use the Carer Card without your child being with you for discounts on shopping and services, and on public transport.  The Carer card is issued in your name.You can get a Carer Card if you receive Carer Payment or Carer Allowance.

Foster, kinship, and permanent carers are also eligible to apply.
