National scheme to offer free cinema tickets to people with an ABI

People living with an acquired brain injury (ABI) may be entitled to free cinema tickets by signing up to a new scheme, a report has revealed.

The CEA Card, developed for UK cinemas by the UK Cinema Association (UKCA), can be used nationwide by people with a variety of disabilities.

Under the terms of the scheme, a disabled cinema guest will receive a complimentary ticket for someone to go with them when they visit a participating cinema.

This is especially handy when the person with an ABI requires around-the-clock care.

The national scheme has also been praised by cinema staff, as they are able to quickly identify the cardholder’s needs and special requirements.

To qualify for a CEA Card, the person must be in receipt of Disability Living Allowance (DLA), Attendance Allowance (AA), Personal Independence Payment (PIP), or Armed Forces Independence Payment (AFIP).
