Croydon disability register and access card

Not forgetting our Croydon customers, Croydon Council have partnered with Nimbus Disability to offer a similar scheme within the borough called the access card.

The card is free and is available to all children and young people on the Croydon Council disability register.

To qualify, a child or young person will need to meet all the following criteria:

  • be diagnosed with a permanent and substantial disability
  • live in the borough
  • be aged 18 years or younger

The access card is available across the UK for £15, but is provided free to Croydon residents as a benefit of joining the disability register.
