The card is the property of the child; the child must therefore be present to use it. Venues reserve the right to ask for proof of identity upon presentation of the card. 


A child/young person will qualify for the card if they live in Oxfordshire, have a disability or additional needs, and are aged 0-25 years. The card is registered to the child and an adult must activate it. It is valid for up to two years.

To apply complete the Max Card application form online which will be sent to Carers Oxfordshire. You will need to supply the child’s full name, date of birth, school name, condition, and the parent/guardians’ contact details.
