Council is an industry affiliate to the Companion Card which is issued to people with a significant, permanent disability, who can demonstrate that they are unable to access most community activities and venues without attendant care support.
The Clarence Aquatic Centre and venues in the City where ticketed events are being held are examples of where the companion card can be used.
The card contains a photograph of the cardholder and can be presented when booking or purchasing a ticket at events and venues, provided the cardholder requires attendant care support in order to participate at that particular activity.
Council will issue the cardholder with a second ticket for their companion at no charge.
