Hi all sorry if this isn't in the right place but I'm sure some one will let me know if it isn't.

I am helping the local council's Childrens disability register, who release a monthly news letter, with compiling a list of freebies and fun stuff for people with kids who have any kind of disabilty. We already have used the link to the free pontins holiday's to get about 15 families with special needs kids a week away.
A while back some one had compiled a list with all sorts such as; days out, BT free directory enquirey, Cinema discounts, Carer discounts, rail discounts and more, if any one knows where the list went, that would be great.

Thanks in advanced.

    1/2 price entry to Longleat.
    1/2 price entry to Newquay zoo.

    My son has special needs and attends a special school! There needs to be a list of discounts etc but I haven't come across one yet!

    I think it used to be on www.bbc.co.uk/ouch but I can't find it now. Maybe email them and ask if they have it in their archives?
  • Thanks for the link, it looks good!

    Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold...But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow...

    I sent all the relevant information they wanted and the money and never heard anything from them. I wandered if they where still operational.
  • My friend got a cinema card about 6 months ago for her son so I think the scheme is still running. There is no date on the website that I could see. The number for enquiries is Tel: 0845 123 1292

    I got this for my son about a year ago, might be worth chasing up :confused:
  • if in Scotland disabled children & adults can claim a free travel bus card, which can be used anywhere in Scotland ( includes long coach trips )
    my son's pass also allows a carer to gain free travel when traveling with him.
