WDP & Tastecard add flavour to lives of service users

Leading drug and alcohol charity WDP is working with the UK’s largest discount diners’ club tastecard to provide people who access substance misuse services the opportunity to dine out at thousands of independent restaurants and high street chains across the country.


tastecard, a member of The Dining Club Group (DCG), will be giving a free three-month tastecard membership to users of the Capital Card, giving them access to the following amazing offers:

  • 2-for-1 (or 50% off) food at 6,000+ restaurants
  • Up to 40% off cinema tickets at Cineworld, Odeon, Vue and independent cinemas (all day, every day)
  • Up to 50% off on days out that include attractions, aquariums, and theme parks.

The Capital Card is an award-winning reward card scheme which empowers WDP’s service users and helps them on their recovery journey. It rewards service user engagement through a simple earn-spend points system, where they can earn points by attending appointments or engaging in treatment, and then spend their points on positive activities in their local community, such as the cinema or gym.

Yasmin Batliwala, Chair of WDP, said: “Having tastecard on board and part of our Capital Card Spend Partner family is exciting news for our service users. We are looking forward to working together so our service users can access a wealth of dining and entertainment experiences – both locally and nationally. This is a great opportunity that our service users can take advantage of and I would like to thank the tastecard team for their extremely generous contribution to our scheme. It will help our service users to embrace and benefit from positive new social opportunities with their friends and family, as well as with their peers.”

Anwar Sultan, CMO of The Dining Club Group, said: “tastecard, the mighty black and green card, always knows where to take its members. Whether they want to save on food, cinema or days out; we’ve got plenty of discounts on offer. At tastecard, what’s important to us is that our members enjoy more experiences with their friends and family.”
