Disability Cards

Hi there

I recently took my son to Jump Inc in Sheffield and was told that I couldn't go free as a carer unless I had a Carer's Card. I had never heard of this card (my son is almost 14). 

I kicked up a fuss as my son has an obvious disability as he has Downs Syndrome, so they let me in for free eventually.

I feel this was an unnecessarily upsetting experience and I emailed the head office but received no reply. Like many of you I don't have the time to constantly be sending letters of complaint but just wondered if anyone has heard of the carers card they were asking about? I just carry an up to date DLA letter around with me now. We have bought my son an annual pass now so they know him really well and never question the carer thing.

What do you do? I hate the idea of paying for a disability card. Getting a tatoo might be a cheaper option lol.

Just interested to hear your opinions/strategies.
