Visitor vouchers: Important update

Due to the current pandemic setting and many of our residents requiring family assistance and care during these difficult times, the council have made the decision to postpone the increase of the qualifying age (from 60+ to 66+) for free visitor vouchers until further notice.

Visitor vouchers

You can now get virtual visitor vouchers online.

If you have already been approved for visitor vouchers, log in to activate them.

During Covid-19, we have decided to extend the additional visitor vouchers to help our residents who live in car free properties through these difficult times. This voucher works in the same way but must be used within 30 days from the date of purchase.

Documents you will need to apply

You must include one proof of current address. Vouchers are issued free of charge to residents who have a daily carer or aged 60+ , so you must also include one proof of age or proof of carer document.

Proof of residency document

  • UK driving licence (including a provisional or paper licence)
  • Council tax letter for current tax year
  • Department for Work and Pensions letter for the current tax year
  • Gas, electric or telephone landline bill dated within 12 weeks of your application.

Proof of age document

  • UK Driving Licence (including a provisional or paper licence)
  • Passport
  • Department for Work and Pensions letter for the current tax year 
  • 60+ London Oyster card.
  • Birth Certificate

Proof of carer document

UK Registration Certificate (V5C) or insurance policy to show that the carer lives at a different address, and one document showing the current tax year from the list below:

  • Attendance Allowance Letter
  • Disability Living Care Allowance Letter
  • Personal Independence Payment Daily Living Component Letter.
