Conservative Councillors are urging local businesses to back a new discount scheme which will benefit people who care for a friend or relative as well as young people with disabilities.
The scheme, which is being launched by Conservative Wiltshire Council, is called the Wiltshire Passport. It is a discount card that is being given as an incentive for carers who sign up to the Carers Emergency Card and to young people with disabilities who register with the “The Key” - an online registry that keeps young people and their parents up to date on services in the area.
By joining either scheme, carers and young people will receive the Wiltshire Passport that will entitle them to receive small discounts or additional services or benefits at all participating businesses.
Councillors are now calling on local businesses to get on board and offer discounts to Wiltshire Passport holders.
Cabinet member, with responsibility for adult social care, John Thomson said, “We are really looking forward to launching the Wiltshire Passport and we are hoping local businesses will join up and offer discounts on goods and services and other benefits. This scheme will encourage more people to use participating businesses as well as offering a ‘thanks’ to carers for the work they do.”
Wiltshire Council will promote the Wiltshire Passport and the businesses which join on its website www.wiltshire.gov.uk/wiltshirepassport
Businesses and organisations that join will be asked to display a sticker in their windows, at tills or entrance doors to publicise that the Wiltshire Passport is accepted.
Any local business or organisation that would like more information can email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Mary Baker on 01225 771608.
