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.
The Max Card provides free access to attractions for looked after children, children with disability or complex needs, their friends and family. The card is valid for two years and gives free entry for 2 children and 2 adults. Search over 245 venues on Max Card's website. Find out more information and apply for a card via the SNAP Parent Carer Forum.
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.
