The Carer Card and Companion Card are a way to:

  • support carers to care for others
  • recognise their significant contribution to our community.

Companion Card

If the person you care for isn’t able to go to community activities and venues without your support, you can use the Companion Card to book or buy tickets. The card will get you a free ticket for the activity or venue.

Companion Card holders get free admission to many community activities, events, and venues.

You can also get free public transport across Victoria.

How to apply
