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.

You can use your card at any of our Edinburgh Leisure venues.
How long does a Carer Access Card last for?

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.

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.
