Bournemouth Parent Carer Forum Max Cards

The Max Card is designed to make days out more financially accessible 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 – locally and throughout the UK – at castles, zoos, bowling alleys and more.

A little piece about the carers card

The number of Carers Discounts available to Carers Card holders in Bournemouth, Poole and Dorset is increasing. The Carers Card scheme now offers discounts from over 199 unique businesses.

we regularly ask carers which types of businesses they would like to obtain discounts from? From one of these “listening” exercises the scheme has recently introduced a new category of Traders. All of the businesses in this category are members of the Buy with Confidence Scheme and approved by Trading Standards in the relevant area. Trading Standard for Bournemouth and Poole website can be found here

Trading Standards for Bournemouth and Poole can be found here http://www.poole.gov.uk/business/trading-standards/buy-with-confidence/.

Dorset Trading Standards website can be found here https://www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/

Carers looking for discounts can now find a roofer, drainage expert, pest controller, tree surgeon to name but a few on the Carers card website by area.

If you as a carer need work done by a tradesman, do not forget to check what carers discounts are available to you!

When you are out and about shopping keep your Carers Card in your wallet or purse where you will see it, it will be a reminder that you are eligible for discount at many businesses across the county and for some internet shopping.
