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.
There are four eligibility requirements for a Companion Card:
- you live in Western Australia;
- you have a significant disability, which may include issues relating to age and psychiatric illness;
- due to the impact of your disability you would be unable to participate at most community venues or activities without attendant care support; and
- your need for this level of support will be life long.
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.
