Welcome to the WA Companion Card Program

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

 

The Companion Card program has been running in Western Australia since April 2006. The program aims to:

 

Two tickets to your favourite event or activity

  • promote the existing right of people with a disability to fair ticketing;
  • assist businesses and organisations to comply with existing legislation; and
  • provide a simple and consistent method of identifying people who legitimately require attendant care support to participate at venues and activities.

 

 

It is important to understand that the Companion Card is a tool that facilitates existing rights and legislation; it is not a new responsibility, discount scheme, concession or benefit.
