Seco employees are entitled to apply for the Blue Light Card scheme, as a worker in the social care sector. Read on to find out what great discounts holders of the Blue Light card are entitled to.

What is the Blue Light Card

The Blue Light Card provides those in the NHS, emergency services, social care sector and armed forces with discounts online and in-store. Blue Light Card also works with small and large companies across the UK to get involved in supporting the Blue Light community through offering our members discounts through Blue Light Card.

What discounts can we get?

A range of official discounts can be found from large national retailers to local businesses in a wide range of categories including holidays, cars, days out, fashion, gifts, insurance, phones and much more!

Discounts can be found online as well as the high street, restaurants and the cinema.

What’s the cost?

The cost, to be paid for by the employee, is £4.99. This will allow access to the scheme for 2 years.

How does it work?

Application is done through the blue light website, using your Seco Support email address. You will have access to the card online, through the app, as well as a physical card sent to your home address.

You will then be able to start using your card straight away! Don’t forget to ask in shops and restaurants if they accept it, as some may not advertise that they do.

All that’s left is to enjoy the great benefits and discounts you will be receiving!
