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.

Companion Card

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.
