Further information:

The Companion Card is for people with a significant and permanent disability, who require attendant care support in order to participate at community venues and activities.

You can apply for a Companion Card if you can demonstrate all of the following:

  • you live in South Australia
  • you have a significant and permanent disability
  • due to the impact of your disability you are unable to participate at most community venues and activities without attendant care support
  • your need for this level of support will be lifelong

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. This enables them to choose who they would prefer to take as a companion to a venue or activity.
