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 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.
The ID card has several benefits for the young carers that choose to have one. Such as:
> To raise awareness of your role and responsibilities.
> To discreetly let people, know about your caring role and responsibilities without having to share personal details over and over again.
> To give you confidence to ask for help or understanding from professionals like teachers, doctors and pharmacist.
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!)
Apply for your ID card!
It would be so great if you can make sure form is complete as we may have return it for any missing information, which will mean that it would take ages for you to get your card.
Please complete one form per child / young person applying for a card.
