The NSW Companion Card program is for people with significant and permanent disability who have a lifelong need for a high level of care to participate in community events and activities.

The Companion Card allows a person’s carer free entry into participating venues and events. This enables people with disability to attend events and participate in activities without the financial burden of having to pay double for access to these kind of activities.
