At Swiis, we’re proud of all the activities our fostering families undertake throughout the year. It provides an opportunity for children and young people to experience new and exciting activities, especially during school holidays or weekends. We know that this can often come at a considerable cost. So back in May, we were happy to announce Swiis Foster Care would be providing all approved foster carers with Max Cards free of charge! This is a great way to experience discounted activities.

The Max Card is a discount card for foster families and families of children with additional needs. Families simply show their Max Card upon entry to a venue in order to obtain free or discounted admission.

The scheme is designed to help families save money on great days out at castles, zoos, bowling alleys, adventure parks and much more across the country.

Have you used the card yet? Please comment here on the activities you have taken part in, as well as what you thought of the experience.

If you are fostering through Swiis and would like to enter the Max Card Scheme, all you need to do is email with your full name, postal address and the name of your local Swiis office.
