Get more active with offers on healthy activities across the Torbay for people on low incomes.

The card is FREE and you can apply at any Torbay library. The care entitles you to:

  • Offers and reduced charges on a range of indoor and outdoor fitness and leisure activities in Torbay.
  • Membership of Torbay Libraries to use free internet and email, borrow books and hire DVDs, CDs and language courses.

The card can be used at the venues and services listed in the leaflet which you will be given with your card. 

The Library and Leisure Card is free but you need to renew it in April each year.

The Library and Leisure Card scheme is coordinated by Torbay Libraries but offers are entirely subsidised by the venues and businesses taking part.
