Blue Badge Holders Beware

A large number of blue badges have been stolen this year in Essex.  It might be well worth investing in a blue badge protector for your car.  Please follow the attached link for further information bluebadgeholderprotector

The Access card

The Access Card is a card like no other, we translate your disability / impairment into symbols which highlight the barriers you face and the reasonable adjustments you might need.

This then informs providers quickly and discreetly about the support you need and may gain you access to things like concessionary ticket prices and complex reasonable adjustments without having to go into loads of personal detail.

Its all based on your rights under the Equality Act and providers responsibilities.

All for just £15 for 3 years.


Heard about the CEA card?

For £5.50 a year (if you receive certain benefits (DLA etc), with a CEA card
you’ll be able to get 1 free ticket for a person you go to the cinema with!
Click on CEA for the form & full details.

  1. If any of the people who attend the club on Thursday morning would like to write a little some thing about themselves, how they enjoy the club, how they are feeling – low, tearful, happy – and how coming to club helps them, then we can add it to the blog/section. It would be really nice to see how others still manage have a life with MS.
