If you live in Sheffield and you receive income related benefits, you could be eligible to receive a discount on some activities at leisure centres run by Sheffield International Venues or Places for People.
You can claim a discount if you receive any of these income benefits:
- Income Support
- Income based Job Seeker's Allowance (JSA)
- Income Related Employment Support Allowance (ESA)
- Pension Credit
- Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
- Housing Benefit
You can claim a discount if you receive any of these disability entitlements:
- Disability Living Allowance (DLA)
- Personal Independence Payment (PiP)
- Blue Badge
- Attendance Allowance
- War Disablement Pension
- Disabled Person Bus Pass
- Severe Disablement Allowance
If you receive any of the benefits above and have children, you can also claim a discount for them if they are under 17.
Children who are looked after by the Local Authority can also claim discounts on leisure activities, as can young carers if they have a Young Carers Assessment or a letter from their school, GP, MAST /social worker or from Sheffield Young Carers as evidence that they are a young carer. Care leavers are also entitled to discounted leisure activities providing they have a letter from the Leaving Care Service.
How do I access the discount?
Our leisure facilities and gyms are managed by Sheffield International Venues and Places for People.
To access your discount, you can visit any leisure, sports or activity centre run by either Sheffield International Venues or Places for People and buy a card for £5. You’ll need to complete an application form and bring recent evidence (from the last 12 months) that shows you receive one of the benefits listed above.
It doesn’t matter if you buy your card from Sheffield International Venues or Places for People – the card you buy will give you discounted access to some activities at all of the venues run by both of them.
