What Is The Carer Shopping Card?

Our carers shopping card service is an award-winning service where The Money Carer Foundation provide carers with a pre-paid Mastercard so that they can perform shopping tasks themselves and or provide clients with cash for their own use should they have this requirement.

This is a fully managed service where the team at The Money Carer Foundation liaises directly with clients, carers, support workers and other professionals in order ensure the smooth running of the accounts by ordering new and replacement cards and dealing with general enquiries. The carer cards come complete with our free smartphone app, Monika, which provides real-time balance and transaction information and instant alerts when funds are added to the accounts.
