Mandatory field

Use this form to apply to our Essential companions scheme
This form is for those who need help to access services when attending Chelmsford City Events. 
We operate this scheme for those who, within the scope of the Equality Act 2010, need somebody to assist them to access the services and facilities at our events. We call this person an Essential Companion. 
The scheme is not open to people who simply require a companion or friend, or who require assistance with transportation to the event. 
The Essential Companion must be fully capable of helping the person with a disability, by means of mobility or guidance, to use and enjoy the services at the event. This is to ensure the safety, wellbeing and enjoyment of their visit and of those they come into contact with. 
The Essential Companion should attend to the needs of the person with a disability at all times whilst on the premises. The Essential Companion needs to familiarise themselves with the layout of the site and the location of services. They should liaise with the event staff if the person with a disability requires assistance and take instructions if we need to evacuate the site. 
Our scheme gives members one free ticket for their Essential Companion. To join, the person with a disability, (or their appointed representative), needs to complete the application and return it to us. The details on the form should be those of the person who requires an Essential Companion. 
Chelmsford City Events are publicly funded. This means that the person with a disability (or their representative) needs to agree that they will use the benefits of membership according to our terms. 
The information you provide us with will help us to provide a better service for you. There is an opportunity on the form for you to tell us about your particular needs. For example, we need to know if you require accessible toilets or showers and what type. The information you give us is protected by the Data Protection Act and we will only use it for the purpose set out here. 
If you have difficulty completing this form or would like more information, please contact the City Events team.
