Care Card is also a tool for Alko store staff
As well as being available to hand out in Alko stores, the Care Card also acts as a tool for sales staff when a customer needs help and raises a problem relating to either their own or a loved one’s substance abuse, crisis, violence or loneliness. The Care Card helps Alko staff to provide assistance and the contact details of organisations that offer expert help.
The Care Card was originally created at the request of staff to support them in challenging customer service situations.
