Those aged 60-64 who obtained their Passport before the age of eligibility increased can still receive their 25% discount until the expiry date but will not be able to renew it until they reach 65.

In order to qualify for team reductions, over 50% of the team requires a Wirral Passport. This scheme is not available to Invigor8 members.


Allowance for a carer


Any individual requiring a Carer to assist them in participating at an activity within Wirral Leisure Services may apply for a Carer Allowance Subscription to be added to their account. Proof of the individual’s circumstances including Disability Living Allowance (DLA), Personal Independence Payment (PIP) or Attendance Allowance will be required. A Carer may then attend the facility with them, free of charge, in order to offer assistance.


If a Carer wishes to participate in an activity they will be required to pay full price. Alternatively a Carer may apply for their own subscription including a Wirral Passport by providing proof that they are in receipt of Carers’ Allowance or Attendance Allowance.
