You can apply to join the Leisure Saver Scheme if you live in the borough of Bracknell Forest and receive one or more of the benefits listed below:
- housing benefit
- working tax credits
- income support
- job seeker's allowance (income based)
- employment and support allowance (income based )
- new claimants on Universal Credit
Dependents of applicants are also eligible for the scheme if they permanently live at the same address.
How to apply
You need to have an e+ card before you apply to join the Leisure Saver Scheme. If you do not have an e+ card, please apply for one. The e+ card is free.
To have the Leisure Saver Scheme added to your e+ card, you need to take proof of your eligibility to one of the leisure sites listed above.
Acceptable forms of proof are:
- Universal Credit proof of entitlement letter
- awards letter
- order book
You must also present some form of identity showing your name, address and postcode, eg a utility bill.
You need to renew your membership of the Leisure Saver Scheme every 12 months.
Changes to benefits system
Universal Credit will replace a number of existing benefits and credits that qualify for the Leisure Saver Scheme. The transition from the current system of benefits and tax credits to Universal Credit will be gradual and it is expected to be completed by the end of 2017.
During the changeover period the current criteria for membership of the Leisure Saver Scheme will still be accepted alongside the new Universal Credit in order to qualify for the Leisure Saver Scheme. As the existing benefit system is phased out all members of the Leisure Saver Scheme will eventually need to be eligible for Universal Credit in order to qualify.
