The Carers Shopping Card

Helping Solicitors to Protect Their Clients and Carers.

With more vulnerable people requiring the legal intervention from Solicitors via Deputyship or LPA, The Money Carer Foundation has opened up its award winning Carers Shopping Card Facility to professionals that support and protect vulnerable adults.

The Carers Shopping Card facility allows Solicitors to manage the shopping funds account online in a fully auditable arena whist allowing carers themselves to receive balance updates via text or via a smart phone App that is 'read only'.  

Solicitors may also choose to be provided with alerts via our newly developed 'Monika' Software. Monika will monitor the transactions made on the carers shopping card and provide bespoke alerts if balances fall below or above a specified level. Monika can also provide alerts to nominated individuals for out of character or suspicious purchases on the account such as multiple cash machine withdrawals for example.


The benefits of the system extend not only to Solicitors in terms of their own efficiencies and audit trails but also to their clients carers who can save time in their day, plan better, and be provided with a more secure and robust way of accessing the allocated shopping funds needed to support the vulnerable person they are caring for.

The Money Carer Foundation also provides a free Income Maximisation Calculator for all carers so they can check that they are receiving all of the benefits and support to which they are entitled.
