About the CEA Card

Would you like a free adult ticket when you take your disabled child to the movies?

The CEA card allows you to get a free carer's ticket. That means that your respite carer, friend or family member can take your child to the cinema for free.

The CEA card has a small annual administration charge for the programme but with a single ticket costing more than the annual fee, its a fantastic card to get!

The card costs £6 and last for 1 year.

Who is Eligible for a CEA Card?
