Victorian Companion Card

Monday 17 December 2007

Victorian Companion CardVictorians with a disability may be eligible for a Victorian Companion Card.

If a person with a disability has a carer attending to their needs, the Companion Card allows them to pay for only one admission to events where entrance fees are involved.

Previously, when a person with a disability gained entry to an event, their carer also had to pay for entry, too.

As the website for the Card puts it: “In the past, a person with a disability who required attendant care type support from a companion in order to participate at venues/activities has been required to pay two admission and/or booking fees; one for themselves and one for their companion. This practice is discriminatory because it has the effect of doubling the admission and/or booking price for the person with a disability.”

As a result, the Victorian Network On Recreation & Disability developed the Companion Card in 1997.

As the website also puts it, the “Companion Card promotes the right of people with a disability, who require a companion, to fair ticketing at Victorian events and venues.”
