Leisure Assistant Pass

About the Pass

The Leisure Assistant Pass is for people with disabilities, of all ages, who require the assistance of a support person when engaging in leisure activities. Upon presentation of the pass at a participating venue, one support person will be given free or reduced admission; facilitating participation, while ensuring the person with a disability does not pay double for their admission. Passes are valid for a 1 year term from the date of issue. As support persons may change, the pass will be issued to the person with a disability.
