We are really proud to be able to offer our Gold Membership that is specifically aimed at special needs and social needs groups.

It is intended for organisations whose members have a range of needs including behavioural or learning difficulties, sensory, mental or physical disabilities. This also encompasses those of socially deprived groups, specialist families and parenting groups, victims of domestic violence, children’s and old people’s homes, or support groups. Please feel free to get in touch with us about any aspect of the membership or to discuss your own requirements in more detail.

The annual fee is substantially reduced to enable these groups to enjoy unlimited visits throughout the year, with very few restrictions on visiting times. We strongly believe in assisting disadvantaged groups to be able to visit the park and enjoy our animals and wildlife all through the year, allowing opportunities that would not always be available.

The park includes dedicated disabled parking bays, accessible pathways throughout the park, large low-level viewing windows at enclosures and a disabled toilet on site with changing facilities.

For more information about the scheme, please download the Gold Membership Summary and Terms & Conditions documents (PDF). Alternatively, do feel free to give us a call and speak to one of the Visitor Services Team on 01404 822188.

You can also download a park Risk Assessment here to help plan your visits.

If you wish to apply, please download and complete an application form before sending to the Visitor Services Team via email at visitescot@wildwoodtrust.org or by post. We will also require supporting literature and payment at the point of application.
