A discount card aimed at families with children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) is to be launched by West Sussex County Council.

The card will provide exclusive offers and money off deals for families and will help them find local activities which are disability-friendly.

The scheme will enable the County Council to compile a disability register, which will provide a comprehensive picture of the needs and disabilities of children and young people within the county and will help with planning what services are needed.

West Sussex Learning Disabilities Partnership Board member, Derek Deedman, said: “This is a great idea. Not only will families have more opportunities to access fun activities, it will also give the County Council valuable information about their needs.

“I understand similar cards in other areas have shown that families can save more than £600 if they use the discount card regularly.”

It’s hoped the card will be launched by the end of 2015.
