The Wildcats are calling on supporters to take advantage of ‘Trinity Together’, a fans’ buddying scheme and our very own Disabled Supporters Companion card.
The Wakefield Community Trust have been working alongside a number of enthusiastic volunteer fans to establish a scheme enabling supporters with a learning disability and/or mental health issues to attend matches alongside their fellow supporters.
Through this network of volunteers the Trust commenced the initiative enabling those supporters with a learning disability or mental health issues to go to games, not with a professional carer, but a friend, a likeminded fan who shares their passion as well as the camaraderie and socialising before and after the game.
Alongside this, the Trust has developed the Companion Card in association with Carers Wakefield & District. The card will allow fans with disabilities to easily access provision of a carers ticket and is also available for memberships.
The Trust are working with other Super League Clubs to allow supporters to access away games too. Application forms are available from Carers Wakefield and District, the Rapid Solicitors Stadium Box Office and Ridings Centre Store.
Those already part of ‘Trinity Together’ attended the final of Rugby League World Cup 2013 and are now looking forward to the start of the Super League season.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
