The Buzz Network

The Buzz Network is a group for Southampton Parents/Carers of children and young people with a disability or additional needs. It's funded by Southampton City Council who work closely with the Southampton Parent Carer Forum to ensure it is meeting the needs of families.

The MAX Card and MAX Card Plus will be issued to all children and young people on The Buzz Network. It gives discounts or benefits to the holder and one other person at a range of venues and organisations within Southampton and further afield. The card can only be used by the registered child and their parent/carer so please don't lend it to anyone else.

Where can I use a MAX Card?

Find out more about the MAX Card and MAX Card Plus or see the MAX Card website for a list of their participating venues.
