Halton’s MAX Card Scheme

The Max Card is a discount card for families of disabled children that can be used at various leisure and holiday activities across Britain. The scheme is designed to help families save money on great days out at castles, zoos, bowling alleys and more.

Halton has registered with this national scheme in the hope that some activities may be more affordable for families.

Please see the website for further details My Max Card

September 2021 update

Unfortunately due to reasons beyond our control Halton Borough Council are unable to distribute MAX CARDS at this time.  As soon as we receive an update from My Max Card and we are able to distribute the cards again we will update the Local Offer and send information out in the DCS Newsletter.

We apologise for the inconvenience.  For more details, please see Halton’s Max Card Scheme flyer – updated September 2021

Disability Record Registration
All Local Authorities are required by the Children Act 1989 to hold a record of disabled children and young people. The record is a list of children and young people in Halton (0-25 years) who have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and who receive, or may one day need to use the services from health, social services, education or the third sector (voluntary organisations).

Registering your child on the Halton Children’s Disability Record helps us identify and plan for the needs of children and young people with disabilities, their parents and carers. Registration is voluntary and is not linked to or a requirement of receiving social care services, which are assessed separately.

For more information please see the policy for details Record of Children with Disabilities Policy
