New Carers Discount Card
The Carers Discount Card is an exciting new initiative from Wigan Council, Wigan, Leigh Carers Centre and Wigan and Leigh Young Carers for Carers which recognises Carers as well as offering discounts to carers from various local businesses to make life that little bit easier.

Invitation to local Businesses to join the Carers Discount Card Scheme
With over 4,500 unpaid carers in the Wigan Borough registered with the Carers Centre (and increasing all the time), local businesses are invited to join the scheme and enjoy the benefits which could include:
- Increased footfall of customers through the door
- Helping businesses to demonstrate their corporate social responsibility
- Free publicity for businesses on the the Carers Discount local offer link
Carers will be made aware of the businesses that are participating in the scheme by looking out for the Carers Discount Card logo displayed in the windows of local shops and businesses.
To register your business or to find out further information on how to join, contact Gail at Wigan and Leigh Carers Centre.
