About Access Card

What is the Access Card?

Information, Evidence, Discounts and Opportunities for Disabled People

The Access Card (sometimes referred to as the CredAbility Card or a Nimbus Card) is a card like no other; we translate your disability/impairment into symbols that highlight the barriers you face and the reasonable adjustments you might need.

Think of it as a Disability Passport.

This then informs providers quickly and discreetly about the support you need and may gain you access to things like concessionary ticket prices and complex reasonable adjustments without having to go into loads of personal detail.

It’s all based on your rights under the Equality Act and providers’ responsibilities.

 All for just £15 for 3 years!

History

Nimbus Disability, created the Access Card and its associated Quality Assurance Scheme CredAbility.

Nimbus is a Social Enterprise set up by disabled people in 2006 to provide advice and guidance to organisations on how best to meet disabled people’s needs in line with what was then the Disability Discrimination Act.

Over the years Nimbus has worked with a wide range of different companies each facing their own issues with regard to working with disabled people.

Long story short: we married our experience of working with companies and for disabled people; eventually coming  up with what we call ‘the bits in the middle’: CredAbility and The Access Card!

What Customers say…

It has been excellent as it has made booking disabled tickets so much easier and when there’s ever been an issue at a venue it has helped resolve it quickly

It has given me peace of mind that I’m not constantly carrying around personal information about myself and my condition

I have been asking for something like this for years. My disability is not always visible so I have to go through the embarrassment of explaining my personal health problems to complete strangers who sometimes don’t even believe me. I’m hoping this card will be recognised everywhere, as it will change my life!

I believe having something that is discreet and accepted will make things easier. I’ve tried a variety of places to find out about “registered disabled” and how to get classified only to find out that it doesn’t actually exist. A person shouldn’t have to carry paperwork with all kinds of personal information around with them just in case they need to get someone to understand they need help.

Excellent, it allows me to communicate my disability needs without having to explain myself all the time. It even works abroad when language/communication is difficult.
