If you are planning a day out with a person you provide care for, things you may need to think about include transport, accessible venues and facilities and discounts for you and them.
A bit of forward planning, as well as getting to know what help is available, can help a lot. Carers Support Centre has plenty of advice and information on its website to help you plan a day out, find carer and disabled-friendly attractions and source and access local discounts.
Many visitor attractions have made real efforts to make sure they are accessible to all, so if you have a particular place in mind it is always worth checking on their website or giving them a ring to find out what they have in place.
Lots of local attractions and businesses now offer discounts for carers, and most visitor attractions and leisure facilities should give free entry for carers if you are supporting the person you care for.
