1.Cinema Cards for Carers or Friends.
The CEA Card is a national card scheme developed for UK cinemas by the UK Cinema Association (UKCA). The Card enables a disabled cinema guest to receive a complimentary ticket for someone to go with them when they visit a participating cinema. Note the person does not have to be a professional carer they can be a friend or family member. The Card is developed by UKCA's Disability Working Group, whose members include film exhibitors and distributors, and national disability charities such as Action on Hearing Loss, the RNIB, Dimensions and Muscular Dystrophy UK. Follow this link for more info and ways to apply for The CEA Card.
2. Football Tickets Discounted with Friends or Carer Going Free.
Most football teams offer discounts and support for disabled fans. The 2018 report The State Of Play' shows an interesting infographic on the teams and what they are doing to support their Disabled communities. Please note this report is for 2018 so always get in touch with your team's Disability Liaison Team to see what they offer. For instance, in 2018, Arsenal FC was top of the 'State Of Play' league and offered half-price tickets to disabled supporters and free tickets to their carer.
