If you have a disability and a lifelong need for ‘attendant care support’ in order to participate in community activities and attend venues, the Companion Card can help you with the costs of getting out and about with the support of a companion. Companion Card holders receive a second ?companion’ ticket at no charge at participating venues and on public transport. The ‘companion’ ticket is also exempt from booking fees. The Companion Card is issued in the name of the person who has a disability, and is valid for 5 years.
A companion is any person who accompanies a cardholder and provides attendant care support. The cardholder?s chosen companion may be a paid or unpaid assistant or carer, family member, friend or partner. Contact 137 468 for further information
