Companion Cards

Lismore City Council supports the Companion Card program, a not-for-profit initiative funded by the NSW Government that helps people with permanent disabilities and their carers affordably participate in community activities and access venues.

The card, which features the holder's name and photo, allows the holder's companion to receive free entry when the holder purchases a ticket at participating venues in NSW.

Eligibility for the card is not based on means testing, and those deemed eligible receive it for life. For more information, visit the website.
