Great discounts on days out across the UK
Max Card is a discount card scheme which aims to make days out more affordable for children and young people with additional needs (up to age 25) and their families/carers . It is valid at over 240 venues across the UK and allows entry for 2 adults and 2 children. The Max Card lasts approximately two years from date of issue and there are no limitations on who can use the card with your child (i.e. A care assistant or other family member can accompany your child).
Each venue offers their own personal discounts for Max Card holders. Venues such as Jorvik and Eureka kindly offer Max Card users free entry, whilst others offer concessionary rates. Further information about Max Card and all discounts are clearly stated on the Max Card website www.mymaxcard.co.uk . Have a look and see if this could be useful for your family. PCAN supplies Maxcards for children and young people with additional needs up to age 25 in Kirklees.
To be eligible for a card, your child/children must be in receipt of DLA (Disability Living Allowance) or PIP (Personal Independence Payment) or be a foster child.
