We know retaining your existing staff is extremely important. Access to rewards and discounts can help which is why we are pleased to be able to reimburse the costs of the Blue Light Card for your care staff. The Blue Light Card offers rewards and discounts for health and social care staff, and each one last for 2 years.

We have funding for up to 10,000 cards available for care staff in Essex working for providers based in the county, and those commissioned by Essex County Council. You will need to purchase the cards and claim the costs back from us. Note that we will only be able to reimburse the cost of cards purchased this financial year (from 1 April 2023) and you will need to provide evidence of the spend to claim, for example an invoice.

For further information on how to claim please contact care.recruitment@essex.gov.uk. The team can also help with your recruitment needs so please do ask them for more information.
