Max Card - Disabled Children

The Max Card is designed to make days out more financially accessible for families of children with additional needs.

The card offers free or discounted entry to great attractions.

So what is the Max Card?

Max Card is a national scheme and its aim is to provide a sense of community through stimulating learning experiences and enjoyable days out for everyone.

It is the UK’s leading discount card for foster families and families of children with additional needs.  Families simply show their Max Card upon entry to a participating venue in order to obtain free or discounted admission.

The scheme is designed to help these families save money on great days out at castles, zoos, bowling alleys and more.

To find out which venues are included in the Max Card scheme, visit the Max Card website.
