What is the Young Carers ID card (YCID)?

On the 16th March 2021 we officially launched our Young Carers ID Card in partnership with WCD Young Carers and Action For Children. Our ID Card will be recognised across North Wales.

The YCID, or Young Carers ID card, is a simple card to help professionals including doctors, teachers and pharmacists to recognise you are a Young Carer which will help them give you the appropriate support you need and deserve.

Are you a young carer?

The YCID card has several benefits for the young carers that choose to have them.

You can find more information about the ID card and its benefits, in this short guide.

What does the ID Card look like?

There will be a suite of options for the ID Card available. This includes a card, a wristband and an app – (which is coming soon!)
