Community, sport and recreation
Many organisations in metropolitan Adelaide and country South Australia provide a range of community, sporting and recreation opportunities for people with disability.
A good place to find nearby activities is your local council.
The South Australian Companion Card is for people with lifelong disability who require constant attendant care. When the cardholder buys a ticket for themselves at a participating venue, their carer has free entry to the same event.
A cardholder with a valid metro ticket can also bring a carer on public transport. The carer travels free.
