Carers

A carer is someone who assists another who is less able, whether they are paid or not for providing this service. We use the term “Service User” to describe the person receiving this assistance. 

Carers attending with a “service user.”

  • All Carers must be registered users of Pembrokeshire Leisure.
  • Employed Carers must display applicable identification (employer ID card)
  • Registered Carers & Paid Carers that participate in an activity alongside their service user(s) will be entitled to free access. If the “Service User” is using the fitness suite, the carer must have previously completed an induction course. Pembrokeshire Leisure will provide the induction free of charge.

Carers attending without a “service user.”

  • Registered Unpaid Carers will be eligible to concessionary rates for all applicable activities once they have registered as a “Carer” with Pembrokeshire Leisure. They can do this by completing a Pembrokeshire Leisure Registration form and sending it to PAVS (Pembrokeshire Association of Voluntary Services). On return of the registration form from PAVS the unpaid carer will be allocated the concessionary status.
  • Concessionary rates are not applicable for employed carers.
