The Carer Business Discount Card scheme recognises the significant contribution carers make to the lives of people they care for and the communities in which they live.
The card provides direct, real benefits to carers in acknowledgement of this contribution. When making purchases from registered businesses, simply present your Carer Business Discount Card to receive the discount or other offer.
To be eligible for a Carer Business Discount Card you must:
- be a resident of Queensland with a Queensland residential address registered with Centrelink, and
- receive the Centrelink Carer Payment or Carer Allowance.
For more details about the Carer Payment or Carer Allowance contact Centrelink on 13 27 17 or visit www.centrelink.gov.au.
Carers who have joined the scheme can access a range of services online to make participation simple.
Using your card is easy. Simply present your card at participating businesses to receive the discount or special offer for carers.
Your card is accepted at a wide range of business outlets. Participating businesses are listed in your local business discount directory, published online, or you can contact Smart Service Queensland for details of business discounts available.
