Proof of age card

The Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS) is a UK-wide accredited proof of age scheme, backed by the British Retail Consortium, the Home Office, Thames Valley Police and the council. PASS cards are accepted nationally.

The Bracknell Forest e+ card has been granted PASS accreditation. It is a reliable proof of age, available free to those who live, study or work in the borough.

Having an e+ PASS card means you can prove your age without having to carry a passport or driving licence.

Information about how to apply, and what documentation you will need to provide, is available on our application page.

Rewards for recycling

If you live in Bracknell Forest, 1 adult member of the household can register your address for the recycling incentive points. You will gain reward points each time you correctly recycle using your blue bin.

Incentive points can be redeemed for a range of rewards across borough leisure and library sites, green rewards, or donated to currently nominated local good causes.

Organ donor register

When you register for an e+ card, you have the chance to register your details with the Organ Donation and Transplantation service at the same time.

You will be asked to give your consent for the council to share your personal data with the NHS Blood and Transplant Service.

Your e+ card will show the organ donor logo.

The NHS Blood and Transplant Service will register you according to the preferences you select. They will write to you directly, sending an organ donor card and notification of the details they have registered.

If you later decide you wish to remove yourself from the register, you will need to contact NHS Blood and Transplant directly.
