Companion Card Program

The Companion Card is issued to people with a significant and permanent disability who require attendant care support from a companion to make use of most venues and participate in activities. Cardholders present their card when booking or purchasing a ticket from a participating business or venue. Participating businesses and venues will recognise the Companion Card and issue the cardholder with a second ticket for their companion at no charge.

Eligibility

There are four eligibility requirements for a Companion Card:

  • The individual lives in Western Australia
  • The individual has a significant disability, which may include issues relating to age or psychiatric illness
  • Due to the impact of a disability the individual would be unable to participate at most community venues or activities without attendant care support; and
  • The individual's need for this level of support will be life-long. Service providers, organisations or companions cannot apply for a Companion Card. Cards are only issued to, and remain the property of, the person with a disability.
