Max Card Click to get info
The Max Card is a discount card for foster families and families of children with additional needs. Families simply show their Max Card upon entry to a 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.
We aim to provide a sense of community through stimulating learning experiences and enjoyable days out for everyone.
We work with local authorities and selected charities, who administer the cards to eligible families in their areas.
In Waltham Forest
Waltham Forest Parent Forum has joined the scheme so anyone who is a member is able to purchase a card directly from them. The Max Card costs £3.60 online (including postage) or £3 in person at a forum event.

Changing Places toilets
People with profound and multiple learning disabilities, as well as other serious impairments such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis or an acquired brain injury, often need extra facilities to allow them to use the toilets comfortably.
Changing Places campaign to deliver toilets that are different to standard accessible toilets (or "disabled toilets") with extra features and more space to meet these needs.
