Sign-up sessions for ID card

An ID card scheme for young people in County Durham has organised additional registration drop-in sessions.

The Safe Durham Partnership scheme offers ID cards to young people so that they can buy certain items requiring a proof of age without carrying a passport or driving licence.

The sessions will take place at Wolsingham Town Hall on Wednesday, 24th August from 6pm to 8pm and Cornerstone Christian Centre in Evenwood on Friday, 2nd September from 10am to 4pm.

Anyone who wishes to sign up for an ID4U card at a drop-in session will need to take a valid passport or driving licence with them.

Alternatively, a ‘verifier’ of over 25 years of age who knows the applicant personally, can complete and sign an application form.

The applicant will also need to provide a recent photograph and a photocopy of their birth certificate, adoption certificate or medical card. Both documents must also be verified.

The card has been developed by Durham County Council in partnership with Durham Constabulary and County Durham Drug and Alcohol Awareness Team.

For an application form or further details of the scheme contact the council’s safer neighbourhood unit on 0300 123 7070 or visit
