Access to venues without the hassle
Have you ever turned up to a theatre or exhibition and discovered you needed documentation to prove you were entitled to a discount? I certainly have and am sure so have most disabled people.
Now that problem is solved by Access Card.
This card verifies that you are disabled and in most cases are in receipt of a disability benefit such as DLA or PIP. If you do not get these benefits there is plenty of space to explain your disabilities on the form. It is also possible to download a paper copy of the form and send it in by post.
I’ve just filled out my application on-line and it was relatively easy. Though I did have some difficulties. There seemed to be no way of moving from one box to the next to input my name and address details. I had to keeping hitting the next button at the bottom of the page which was annoying.
You will need to have a copy of your benefit letter, a copy of some photo ID and a separate photo for use on your card. All of there were easy to upload on the the Access Card site.
Now I have to wait for my card and I’ll update this post when it arrives and I’ve used it.
