Cornwall's Max Card Scheme

The Max Card is the UK’s leading discount card for families of children with additional needs to use at venues across the UK to get free or discounted admission.

A child is eligible for Cornwall's Max Card scheme providing that they are aged 0 to 19, have a disability and/or complex health care need, and are a resident of Cornwall.

Unfortunately, due to high demand, we have reached our limit for Max Cards this year. Any updates for next year will be publicised here and across our social media accounts. 

How can I apply for a Max Card?

To apply for a Max Card you need to create an account on this site and register your child with us on the Disabled Children’s Record where you can choose ‘Yes’ under the Max Card option.

If you registered while Max Cards were unavailable and would like to add your child on the list or make sure they are on it, please contact us. There is a limited number of Max Cards and they are distributed on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

You will receive a confirmation email when your Max Card has been sent in the post.

Who is eligible for the Max Card?

A child is eligible for Cornwall's Max Card scheme providing that they:

  • Are aged 0 to 19 
  • Have a disability and/or complex health care need
  • Are a resident of Cornwall 

Who can use my Max Card?

The card is the property of the child, so in order to obtain the discount the child must be present. In many cases the discount is extended to carers and accompanying family members, but this varies between the venues.

Venues reserve the right to ask for proof of identity upon presentation of the card. Please ensure that before you visit the attraction you are certain about how many accompanying adults and children are allowed.

Where can I use my Max Card?

How long can I use my Max Card for?

Your Max Card is valid for two years. The expiry date is shown on the reverse of your card. After this expiry date, you will need to get in touch with us if you wish to receive a new card.

What happens if I lose my Max Card?

Please ensure you keep your Max Card safe and secure as we are only able to issue one replacement per child, dependent on availability. 

Do you provide Max Cards to foster carers?

We have invested into the scheme for children with disabilties in Cornwall, we do not provide Max Cards to foster carers in Cornwall. 

If you are a foster carer, joining The Fostering Network will entitle you to similar benefits to a Max Card as part of your membership

If you are fostering a child who has a disability they will be entitled to a Max Card, so follow the above steps to apply for one. The card is the property of the child even if they change their fostering placement.
