An annual admission pass for someone who requires full time personal support.

A Plus Carer Pass is available to someone whose disabilities prevent them from accessing and enjoying Almond Valley without the full time personal support of a carer. The Pass provides admission to Almond Valley on the same terms as a Family Pass, but the disabled person can be accompanied by one supporting carer without additional charge.

The Pass is issued to the disabled person who can select who accompanies them to provide their personal care and support during their visit. If circumstances require it, the administration of the Pass can be undertaken by a regular carer, however the pass is issued in the name of the disabled person and is their property.

To qualify, you must meet criteria similar to those required for free bus travel with a companion using a National Entitlement Card.

  • You receive a qualifying DWP benefit - Attendance Allowance, the higher rate of the mobility component or the higher or middle rate of the care component of Disability Living Allowance, Personal Independence Payment or War Pension Constant Attendance Allowance. or
  • You receive a qualifying Social Security Scotland benefit - Pension Age Disability payment, Adult Disability Payment, or receive the higher rate of the mobility component or the higher or middle rate of the care component of Child Disability Payment
