The assistant of a person with intellectual disabilities gets free access to different events and hobbies when presenting a Friend Card. The card can be used for example in many theaters, concerts and swimming halls. The card works in places that we have a contract with. The service providers that have made a contract with us can be found at ”service providers” link.
Friend Card is held by a person with intellectual disability and they use it with a person of their choice. The assistant can be a different person each time, but it can not be another person with intellectual disability.
