What is a Max Card

Max Card Max Cards are similar to Student Union Discount Cards but offer discounts to parents of children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (up to 25) at a variety of venues and settings e.g. Butlins, Lincolnshire Park Farm, Jorvik Centre, some museums, Go Ape, Bedlam Paintball, Alton Towers ....

For more detailed information please check out the Max Card website which also has an excellent search facility to check out what is near you, or look for activities.
N.B. remember you can check out what settings accept the card at your favourite holiday destinations.
ALSO - Although LPCF are not involved, another separate scheme called CEA Cards operates for participating cinemas and theatres

How Can I Get One?

Background

Firstly let us dispel a myth - Max Cards are NOT FREE although LPCF do issue them to some members for FREE.
LPCF and other issuers have to pay to purchase cards and all the costs associated with distribution and tracking etc.

Max Card LPCF volunteers have sought out funding to purchase and administer issuing Max Cards via grant funding and were successful in obtaining this back in 2017 on a trial based upon the funders targets that it would "encourage engagement and participation of parents as well as act as a recruitment incentive for new members to LPCF".

Currently 400+ cards have been issued and the first batch will be expiring in November 2020 so LPCF have to provide feedback and evaluation to funders that the grant funding did meet its targets.
To seek future funding LPCF now need all your feedback to build a new funding bid to pay for new / further cards.
Without your feedback we have no evidence to present to grant funders and the cards will eventually cease.
N.B. LPCF do not replace lost Max Cards.
