Is this eligible with pip

You don't need pip, in fact you don't even need the card. It's up to the cinemas to provide reasonable adjustments. If you have a need for a carer simply explain to the box office (usually on dedicated help lines, or via the box office in person) you are disabled and need assistance, without it you cannot attend. Also ask if creating an account with venues to put a note on your account, that you need a carer. It makes follow on bookings that much easier.Generally companies are responsive, you do not even need a benefit letter in some cases. On a few occasions one of those " I have a certain disability" cards have even sufficed. Be assertive and don't back down. Good luck.
Shame they do this also include those in Support group ESA with the disability component now that PIP is next to impossible to claim.

I've put off claiming PIP for so long because of the dodgy WCA & then having to do a MR then go to court for an appeal just figured it wasn't worth it but could really use the extra help plus it'd mean wife could claim carers allowance too as she has to support me too just waiting for my WCA now managed to get into Support group ESA without one based on my paperwork & evidence I sent so I'm kinda hoping for a similar result but not really expecting it.

Can't believe the gov were trying to change points scored if you use an aid to make it even harder to qualify.

Also I came on this thread expecting to see countless nasty posts about scroungers and people expecting something for nothing (like a disabled person would rather a freebie entry to the cinema instead of good health) but I was pleasantly surprised so thank you to everyone who's posted on thus thread you've restored my faith in humanity a little.

This card is very good. It has been around for years, & I've seen it on here a few times in the past. I first got one when my son was 4, & he's now 13 next week.
You have to be aged 8 and over.
they must have changed it as i used to have one when my son was younger.

Question:
Who is eligible for a card?
Answer:
The eligibility criteria are kept under review and maybe updated from time to time; currently people who receive one of the following benefits are eligible:
Disability Living Allowance (DLA);
Attendance Allowance (AA);
Blind Persons Registration;
Personal Independence Payment (PIP); and
Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP).
Additionally, limitations placed on Cinemas by their local licenses require children and young people under 8 years of age to be accompanied by a responsible person; consequently applications for cards can only be considered for people who are 8 years of age or older.

I don't think for one minute that, that is the reason for the carer card. Theme Parks, yes, as I know for a fact that the staff will not assist the disabled (at least Alton Towers doesn't), but EVERY modern building is more than capable of accommodating all but the severely disabled so there is no reason for a carer to "work" by holding open the doors?!?!?

I just saw your reply. I wasn't going to reply but I'm confused about your comment that "EVERY modern building is more than capable of accommodating all but the severely disabled so there is no reason for a carer to "work" by holding open the doors". I don't remember if you were the guy with an autistic son but I'm surprised that you assume only severely disabled people need help in modern cinemas. Our local cinema has very heavy doors and I struggle to open them for my husband who is in a wheelchair. I don't know what you consider severely disabled. There are such a variety of abilities out there and they affect people in different ways. Your assumption that a small percentage of disabled people need significant help is not true. I'm not sure what you think the carer card is there for exactly, if not to assist the disabled person. Do you think it's just a freebie for being disabled? I just found your comment strange. It seems you have very little knowledge of the disabled.

I use the card all the time and think it's well worth the £6.00. My daughter loves the cinema and I love the fact that I have her so I can see the kids films as well. Looking forward to seeing Inside Out and Paddington was great.
Yet if I want to go to the same film with my child, I have to pay for us both?!?! Surely the point of something like this is that it compensates the "carer" for having to 'endure' something for the benefit of the disabled person?? If you want to go, why should you go free??? BEFORE THE LOONIE LEFTIES START its a genuine question. I know someone with a seriously disabled child, she was over the moon when she found out all the "free" stuff she could get as a carer.... it was truly disgusting to hear!!
Don't get me wrong, I would NEVER swap the health of my child for a cheap cinema ticket, but lets remember, the cinema is not a charity, the rest of us have to pay to make up the losses. The one near us has special screening for those with mental disorders where the volume is low and the lights are left on, that's truly a great idea, but then to not charge on top of that is crazy.... where does it stop???
BTW, the deal is still good for those UNFORTUNATE enough to need it.

What's your disability, duplication disease?!?!?! :) If you want to discuss, lets discuss, if you want to act like a child, jog on as I REALLY can be arsed.
Well the alternative is that the disabled person doesn't go at all, then the cinema doesn't even see the profit of one ticket sold.
Why though, the person I was replying to said that they wanted to see it anyway, i.e. THEY wanted to see it, so they would have gone anyway?!?! I'm not, repeat NOT, looking for an argument, I'm just offering an opinion ;)
so you can only go if its something you would hate? what if you thought you would dislike it and half way thorough you found out you were enjoying it? do you have to pay half? just because you don't mind or want to see something doesn't mean that you otherwise would. i would like to see minions bu cant afford the 16 for me and someone to go with me, but could go if they could get in free regardless whether they would see it anyway.
you my friend are a trolololololol, no matter what you say, your argument is invalid.
If I want to and see a film, both I and the person I go with pay £8 EACH, why should you get it for half price,?? It's this sense of ENTITLEMENT I have issues with!!! If you genuinely NEED a carer to go to the cinema, fine, but lets just be HONEST for one second, hardly ANYONE NEEDS a carer to go to the cinema as law dictates that they are disability compliant. If I'm a troll, you're a scrounger.... you see, its easy to throw insults if you want to start that game. Chances are, I'm ALREADY paying your way through life, so go ahead, have a freebie cinema ticket on me too, in fact, tell them to chuck you some sweets then get someone else to pay for them too!
This thread was pretty much wound up, don't know why you felt the need to stick your fat head into the mix at this late stage, but I wont be checking it again and I've clicked the good old ignore button. You will no doubt feel the NEED to respond, so feel free, you clearly have nothing better to do than spam old deals and in that sense, I really do pity you.
You have a great life and keep picking up those freebies.... it's not problem, I'll keep paying :)
You seem pretty certain that "Hardly anyone needs a carer" i suggest you spend more time with vulnerable people and you may change you mind, although it seems pretty closed shut because of your sisters situation.. we aren't all like that..
And why would you be paying his/her way through life, its like you have made this assumption that disabled people = scroungers who do not work and just claim benefits..
Stephen Hawkins prob earns more in a day than you do in a year, he is disabled so he would be entitled to a CEA card and a carer would have to accompany him, they might actually enjoy the movie too!.
Now remove the Fame, Status and Genius, and there are thousands of people just like him, who need help and support to do every day things, simply if you do not like that fact then though luck, we live in a democracy and our government of elected peers has decided that disabled people count and are a valuable part of society..

Please don't lets start this game. If you read the post properly, you would see that it was written in response to their judgemental post (I was highlighting how easy it is to assume!!). However, I stand by my comment that "carers" are NOT required in the majority of cinemas (I'm talking PHYSICAL as opposed to mental disability).

Also, you're quoting the wrong person, please at least lets get that right :). Look, I have a disabled family member, he's in a wheelchair, he also openly brags how he can get people into cinema and Alton Towers for free so I know how it works. I still have issues with the entitlement issue, it SHOULD be seen a valued bonus, not a right :) As for "disabled people count and are a valuable part of society", of course they do, there but for the grace of god etc. HOWEVER, I don't think that a free cinema ticket goes even half way towards helping that.

been going for years this and not all cinemas accept it plus the terms to claim one are so stupid sick of dla people getting all the perks when it should be for esa people who need more care

I know what you mean as my parents got sickness benefits for years as dad had severe heatlh issues but as they didnt get DLA they couldnt apply for a disabled railcard, that being said I also know people who get DLA and have to claim JSA as they are seen as fit to work but may have like me something like autism meaning they struggle to get through the day(and its misunderstood as them being lazy or stupid) I had to wait years to finally get ESA for it but I do work now and again for short periods its just I feel ill and almost collapse long term due to not being able to handle the stress.

Someone who may be in a wheelchair may have physical barriers to work but can handle certain jobs more than someone with autism with a healthy body who claims JSA.

Anyway the carer thing for me related to that is that I have motivational and stress and anxiety problems, someone with me relaxes me and can process my information I.e I have a active mind so cant focus so need someone to "hold my hand" so to speak or to tell me what I am thinking is correct or to tell me whats the best thing to do(not what to do) the issue with that though is I only get lower rate DLA so not entitled to a companion bus pass, I do not want more money but the help from a friend would help my mental heatlh.

Going into the bad side of carers though, I dont mean the ones that spend all day with people but ones that are often private and have set times to look after people, my mum worked with a council one growing up and used to know people who confused the people into getting free bus rides home(then when on the bus tell the person they cant get on as its not their bus) or leave a few stops before the person who often had learning difficulties and would be confused, or take them on trips where they wantd to go i.e cinema and watch film they wanted not the person they were meant to be helping! I had a group of carers in old town before I moved(meant to get some here but still waiting 6 months later) they used to fail to turn up for appointments, refused to take me in car saying they werent given money for that and to pay myself(but drove things like BMW's or Mercedes) used to arrive late, leave early and just not actually literally care in any way, only a free charity one that was local cared(until they had cutbacks on funding so the new boss came out to see me and said I wasnt entitled to help)


This is why I find it unfair how dla people get all these extra perks people that claim that benefit most times can also work people who claim esa because they are to sick to work and then have to use friends or family as carers who get nothing.

Same with bus pass esa can't get one dla can and the companion thing is a joke only some councils offer it.

I got my bus pass before I claimed DLA luckily, not sure if being in Scotland its different but used to anger me how you would get well known or obvious junkies and alcoholics come on the bus and get their friends and partners on free, often they would sit at back of bus and talk about what drugs they are taking or how they are using their giro to get drunk yet I couldnt get a companion on despite being autistic and needing a motivator and I had carers but just sat at home because to go anywhere I had to pay petrol.

I had a group of carers in old town before I moved(meant to get some here but still waiting 6 months later) they used to fail to turn up for appointments, refused to take me in car saying they werent given money for that and to pay myself(but drove things like BMW's or Mercedes) used to arrive late, leave early and just not actually literally care in any way, only a free charity one that was local cared(until they had cutbacks on funding so the new boss came out to see me and said I wasnt entitled to help)


This is why I find it unfair how dla people get all these extra perks people that claim that benefit most times can also work people who claim esa because they are to sick to work and then have to use friends or family as carers who get nothing.

Same with bus pass esa can't get one dla can and the companion thing is a joke only some councils offer it.
Maybe I missed something, but each time I have applied for a CEA card for my disabled wife I had to prove she was in receipt of DLA . It's not available to Just anyone. Secondly for those of you who are caring after another please please make enquiries with the benefits people, you may qualify for benefits, such as DLA, Carers Allowance or attendance allowance, there are a number of sites which are very informative and offer guidance if you are uncertain.
Thirdly can those individuals who write derogatory remarks about this thread, just thank the lucky stars they aren't in that position of needing care or being a carer and simply GROW UP!!!!!!.
my wife has one of these cards and it is great that someone who couldn't go on their own to watch a film can without the extra cost useing the card.
Disabled people have a tough enough time and it's nice when they can get some help for free.
Some carers may be asked to go to presentations that they just don't want to see. But may be happy to escort a friend or relative so that they can attend. The cinema is getting a paying customer and a carer to enable the customers well-being. I need a carer as I have heart failure, diabetes T2 and had 2 strokes; I wouldn't want to be alone in the dark if I had any complications and was unable to summon help.

Thanks , I'll let her know about it as far as I know she doesn't get any carers allowance , just working tax credit and DLA for her son but I don't know if the tax credits take his disability into account?


As long as she cares for at least 35 hours and doesn't earn over £100 a week she possibly would, though they do take income support into account too. Working Families Tax Credit also has a disability component if he is receiving DLA at (I believe I'm right in saying) middle or higher rate they pay a higher rate of tax credit. She might also qualify for other support, I won't post it on here but search direct.gov.uk or send me a message and I will help if I can, I just don't want to get people started if I start listing other entitlements.


Thanks , am seeing her later on today so will ask her but I think she may earn more than £100 as she works for 20 hours a week & above min wage

I think this cinema deal makes perfect sense as how can someone with a disability be left on their own in the cinema to fend for themselves , it just couldn't happen so is a good / practical solution for those with disabilities to be able to attend the cinema in the first place as it would be impossible without a carer there

I just hope my DGS gets used to going to the cinema again as last time I took him it was too distressing for him as he hates change / new places etc and we had to leave after 5 minutes as he was too distressed being in a 'strange' enviroment , bless him xx

I had so much trouble even getting him to go into the cinema screening because it was down a long dark corridor and then he wouldn't settle at all , was too uncomfortable there :(

( I used to take him when he was 2 - 3 and he was fine , but is more sensitive to his enviroment now at 4 )

I think my daughter is going to persevere with it though as he does get used to places in time and he has his favourite restaurants now which he won't even let her walk past without going in!!! LOL
I haven't read all the comments, but here are the facts:

This is a voluntary thing that cinemas opt into. There's no financial incentive for them to do so, and they have no obligation to honour it.

The card simply verifies that you, according to the CEA, require care.

It's meant to let people who couldn't come to the cinema on their own be able to. If someone has a physical or mental issue that prevents them from making their way to the cinema and/or being able to hang around a long period of time without a trained carer, then they're who this is aimed at.
If anyone's a student and gets the CEA card, then you can use them together. Plus if there's any offers going on, for example fews ago..there was 40% off Odeon Cinema vouchers, i used my CEA card, student discount, plus 40% off...giving me a total of £3.87 for both. i didnt get to try o2's free cinema deal - now finished, however in theory you would off got 2 people in for free!

Hi

I didn't know about this!! I receive DLA.

I've looked up the participating cinemas but noticed that my local Odeon isn't listed, but 'Odeon Cinemas Ltd' is included under the heading '2) Participating National Cinema Chains
Participating National Cinemas where you can obtain an application form are listed alphabetically below.' Please does anyone know if that means my local Odeon will be included?

Thanks
Errrr, probably best to give them a ring or at least give us an idea of where your local Odeon is LOL :D


I thought that giving you a clue to where I live might be a bit too much information for privacy - it's Lincoln. I emailed them but don't trust to get the right answer from them and might take ages. I can't travel further really, I can't afford to pay for the card if we can't use it. Thanks

Nah, were not all psychopaths and Lincoln is a big place, your question was impossible to answer without a clue you narna :D (and thats a term of endearment before anyone accuses me of insulting anyone!!).

My goodness Sir you almost sound nice.!.

Thats because I am ;)

I would go for this except my cinema does not participate in it, Still its hot though :D
Yes, this is legit as I have a card for both my daughter and son, and this means that my wife and I both get in free of charge to the cinema when we go with them. But its not just us, when they go to the cinema with friends, one of them gets in free. It can be used nationwide and we have also used it in Southern Ireland a few times. The card is a godsend as it saves a fortune each time we go, but we have noticed that if you use it at the Odeon Cinema's then you just show the card and pay your money, but when used at Vue Cinema's you have to fill a form in when purchasing the tickets. Would defintely recommend one of these cards to anyone with a disablity.

you sure this is legit ILP?? 5.50 processing fee for a card to "prove" your entitlement.?

surely a blind or disabled person has enough ID to prove they qualify without paying for a card? Im just concerned this may be a scam like those sites that charge for european health cards/american estas etc.


No scam, I got one a few years ago and have been using it with no problems since

TAH-M
No - it's not a scam - but used to be £5 for three years until some point in the last year - so it's effectively tripled in price!!

Actually , with a "hidden" disability, sometimes it's a pain to "prove" you are disabled. The A4 DLA letters are hardly conducive to being carried around, and not all disabled people have blue badges which are more portable


Yup, I got mine when it was 3 years, runs out next year.

I have hidden disability and agree its hard to convince people, blue badge is no good either because you usually use it to park somewhere, and therefore cant show it! I have it photocopied and show that or CEA card as proof.
It's nationwide. Have not been refused by any cinema anywhere to date. They swipe a barcode (not on the card, cinema staff don't like it much as it's a bit of a faff) and give you a free ticket. simples.
Unfortunately as with everything else it will not apply to our little town on the coast.

True this card only lasts for 1 year but considering it costs £5.50 and you save more than that on using it just once then it has got to be a good deal in my opinion. I have never paid myself into the cinema since using the card and getting in as a free carer. I wasn't aware of it existing for my teenage son and have already saved over £40 using it in the first 2 months. Unlike other cinema offers and vouchers this is fully valid for 3D screenings. However I am a bit disappointed I can't use it to book online then again I understand the cinema would need to check the card before purchasing. All in all my opinion is I will be renewing it next year and have recommended it to a few other people.
I think it was well worth posting, it's possible some newly disabled/VI people aren't aware of it, so it is new information for them. For those people who knew about it previously, there are many who won't know the validity has changed from 3 years to 12 months, I didn't. Either way, £5.50 for a year's cinema is excellent value. Heatage. :thumbsup:
Not as good a deal as it used to be! I got mine last year and its valid for 3 years

Still good though, you only need to go once to make your money back
I renewed mine in march and its valid for 3 years.
How is this a deal though? It's a concession for people who have a disability and while it's a great concession it isn't a deal s it is available all of the time to disabled people.

Next someone will post details of DLA or Carers allowance as a deal. How about "Blue Badge' FREE parking??

not really freebie either


If its free to the carer that's a freebie
Used my card in local showcase on saturday and had to write down my address and telephone number - not happened before

I was happy enough though, didnt think showcase accepted the CEA card!
wow! excellent my 15 year old has learning difficulties and i get DLA for him and he loves to goto the cinema but we just cant afford it.... this is great
THANKS
:thumbsup:]
fantastic. looking into this now, as I'm a carer to my schizophrenic partner, and we both enjoy seeing films, but I have to convince him to go only on wednesdays usually.
I have had my address taken but when i called them to give them my change of address the woman said no point as they don't ever contact me:?

Although not applicable to me or mine, have voted hot as a very worthwhile thread. :)

Don`t mean to be rude but why would blind people want to go the the cinema...


The same reason some people still prefer to see films at the cinema rather than on TV at home - it's a totally different experience both visually *and* aurally.

why can`t deaf people be allowed the same benefits?


I am not connected with this scheme so can't say for certain, but I would imagine that it was set up because in order to go to the cinema many disabled and blind people, need somebody else to provide help with transport, supervision and/or care. In order to see a film, they therefor have no choice but to pay double the cost. A deaf person on the other hand doesn't need this extra kind of help so isn't penalised in the same way.
i didn't think you actually need a card as proof,my friend just takes proof of disability letter with her and it does the same thing she has been doing that for years,maybe it has changed now??, might be worth phoning the cinema and see if they accept with a letter, if you can it saves you buying the card.
i looked on odeon website and they do say you need the card,maybe it's because she has been going for about 6/7 years that they allow her in without the card.
I have an autistic son who has one of these cards and they are excellent, it saves me a fortune as i would usually have to pay for a carers ticket as well.
Check that your local cinema is registered to accept this card, most are now. also we get the same discount to some exhibitions, plays and pantos with this card. definately worth asking.
as long as you are recieving disability living allowance which can be for a number of reasons ie- my mums had breast cancer so gets dla and has one of these cards my friend who as 6 children 3 on disability for behavour problems has one for each of the 3 kids on dla and the other 3 go free !!!
