CitizenCard is a not-for-profit organisation that works closely with schools, charities and trading standards across the UK.
- we offer cards free of charge to schools, colleges and universities
- we provide cards free of charge to our charity and government partners
- we run the No ID No Sale campaign which main purpose is to prevent under-age sales
We have worked with schools for many years issuing tens of thousands of proof of age / ID cards for free to students through schools and colleagues. Students use the cards to access cinemas and other age-restricted venues. In addition shop owners in the area know that students carry proof of age and can easily insist on seeing ID when young people buy age restricted goods.
We work with a large number of charities across the UK supporting vulnerable and homeless people who don’t have a form of recognised ID. Through the charities we produce free ID cards, and we also encourage people who do have official ID, such as a passport, to keep that somewhere safe and carry a CitizenCard as ID instead. We work closely with our local charity Ace of Clubs, which provides essential services for homeless people, such as showers and a launderette, and a nice meeting space for people who have nowhere else to go.
We produced urgent cards for Sharon and Sean so that they could register their intention to get married with the local council.
"The CitizenCard was a total lifesaver! Getting it meant that I could attend a job interview."

No ID No Sale campaign
CitizenCard runs the No ID No Sale! campaign which provides retailers with information packs and advertising materials to prevent under-age sales of tobacco, alcohol and other age restricted goods. We produce and distribute the materials to individual shops and to trading standards offices across the UK.
