Companion Card provides a simple and reliable way for businesses to identify a person with any type of permanent disability who requires significant and lifelong attendant care support to attend activities and venues in the community.

There is no age limit on who can apply for a card and all card applications are rigorously assessed to ensure eligibility is meet. Please note not all cardholders use a wheelchair.

Companion Card is a small program operating throughout Australia and cardholders can use their card in all states and territories. In Queensland there are less than 11,500 cardholders.

A cardholder presents their card when buying a ticket to an event or activity and is issued a free “companion” ticket for their carer. The cost of the ticket is absorbed by the business.
