What supporting information should I send with the application?
You should send any relevant supporting information, such as:

- copies of up-to-date reports from health professionals (e.g. a specialist, psychologist, speech therapist, physiotherapist, paediatrician, occupational therapist, registered nurse or social worker)
- any other information that you believe will show that you qualify for a Companion Card (e.g. details about the support you receive through the National Disability Insurance Scheme)
