What is the Companion Card?
The Companion Card program is a not for profit program funded by the NSW Government.
A Companion Card is for people with significant and permanent disabilities that need a carer with them at all times to participate in community-based activities and venues. It aims to promote the rights of people with disability to fair ticketing and make community access and participation more affordable.
How does it work?
The card itself is the size of a credit card, with the name and a photo of the holder — who is the person with a disability. When the holder buys a ticket for themselves at selected venues and facilities around NSW, their companion will get free entry.
Companion Cards are not means-tested and those assessed as eligible have the card for life.
