Potential fraudulent campaign targeting unpaid carers

We are getting in touch to alert you to a marketing campaign that targets unpaid carers as we have strong concerns about its legitimacy.

The campaign can be seen via its website: Carers Card UK – Carers ID Card

You will see that the campaign asks unpaid carers to buy a Carers Card UK via a prominent online button. People clicking through will be asked to give their bank details.

The website prominently displays the logos of organisations widely respected among the unpaid carer community, including the NHS, Carers Trust and Carers UK.

Carers Trust have been in touch with us and notified that the NHS and Carers UK have not consented for their logo to be used to help market the Carers Card UK. We understand that the NHS have referred this matter.

Our strong advice is that we recommend unpaid carers do NOT purchase the Carers Card UK.

If you have any concerns, please contact our Adviceline on 0113 380 4300.
