The Max Card is the UK’s leading discount card for foster families and families of children with additional needs. Families can use their Max Card at venues across the UK to get free or discounted admission.
Max cards are available for people aged 0-25 with additional needs or who are looked after and are registered on an Isles of Scilly children services database. A max card gives families a discount or free entry to participating venues in the UK. If you feel you or your child is eligible for a max card then please contact us at LocalOfferScilly@scilly.gov.uk.
For up to date information about where you can use your Max card please visit the Max card website: www.mymaxcard.co.uk
You can use your max card on the mainland and on the Isles of Scilly. You will need to show your Max card and you may be asked to book in advance; it is therefore best to check and plan your visits. There are currently around 20 venues in Cornwall where you can use your max card and at the moment one venue on the Isles of Scilly.
You can view the Isles of Scilly attraction on the Max card website: www.mymaxcard.co.uk/tresco-island/
We are working towards signing up local attractions to the max card scheme so please keep an eye on this page for future updates.
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.

Please note: If you lose your card we are able to get a replacement for you at this time but there may be a small charge. Please contact us at LocalOfferScilly@scilly.gov.uk if you need a replacement.
