I believe you have a card for carers - how do I get one and what does this let me do/access?

Our Carer Access Card has been designed to enable carers to support the individuals they are caring for when they visit our facilities.

The access card allows a carer to book into an activity alongside an Edinburgh Leisure customer at no additional cost to the carer.

The card is for carers to offer functional support to participants with a disability who wish to access Edinburgh Leisure services.


What access do I get with a Carer Access Card?
Your card provides you with access to the gym, swimming pools and fitness classes within Edinburgh Leisure facilities whilst providing functional support to a participant with a disability.

Where can I use this card?
You can use your card at any of our Edinburgh Leisure venues.

How long does a Carer Access Card last for?
This card lasts for 12 months.

Can the card be renewed after 12 months?
Yes - we'll send all cardholders information about how they can renew their card 6 weeks before their current card is due to expire.

Who can use my card?
Only you.  All Edinburgh Leisure cards are unique to the individual who took them out and if someone else uses this card we have the right to withdraw it.

Can I use my card to access activities when I'm not caring for someone?
No. We have the right to withdraw the card if this is happening.
