Access to Leisure and Learning

Coronavirus (COVID-19): change to service

On advice from the government regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have temporarily suspended as we are unable to process new applications or applications to renew memberships.

We are currently considering options for existing members who can't use their Access to Leisure and Learning (ATL&L) cards during the closure of ATL&L venues.

See further information about changes to services.
