Disability Related Discounts

Did you know that as a parent or carer of a child with special educational needs or disabilities, you may be able to get discounted or free entry to a range of leisure options?

You may also find that you can skip lengthy queues.  Not all attractions will advertise their discounts, so don't be afraid to ask!  You will need to have with you evidence of disability - a copy of your award letter for Disability Living Allowance for example.

More information about local attractions can be found on the Experience Bedfordshire website.  

The Rough Guide to Accessible Britain is free to download and includes ideas for days out across Britain, with reviews, tips and access information.

CEA Card

The CEA Card enables a disabled cinema guest to receive a complimentary ticket for someone to go with them when they visit a participating cinema.  The Card is also one way for cinemas to make sure they look after their disabled guests. If you require an adjustment to visit a cinema because of your disability, cinema staff should make them for you whether you have a CEA Card or not. More information and how to apply can be found on the CEA Card website.

Access Card

What is the Access Card?

Information, Evidence, Discounts and Opportunities for Disabled People

The Access Card (sometimes referred to as the CredAbility Card or a Nimbus Card) is a card like no other; we translate your disability/impairment into symbols that highlight the barriers you face and the reasonable adjustments you might need.

Think of it as a Disability Passport.

This then informs providers quickly and discreetly about the support you need and may gain you access to things like concessionary ticket prices and complex reasonable adjustments without having to go into loads of personal detail.

It’s all based on your rights under the Equality Act and providers’ responsibilities.

 All for just £15 for 3 years!
