Active Kids program

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

Parents can claim two $100 vouchers for each school-aged child in 2020 to help get them involved in sport and fitness and creative activities.

It is a part of the  NSW Government’s Active Kids voucher and Creative Kids voucher programs.

The Active Kids program started in 2018 after it was found the majority of children and adolescents in NSW were not meeting the daily recommended levels of physical activity.

It offers a $100 voucher to help with the costs of organised sporting activities with providers who have registered with the government. 

Building on the success of its Active Kids voucher program, the NSW Government introduced a new way to support children who excel in other areas last year.

Parents of school-aged children will have access to a $100 voucher per child participating in eligible creative and cultural learning activities.

The vouchers can be used to contribute to registration, participation and membership costs for activities.

Every family in NSW with a child enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 will be eligible for the Active and Creative Kids vouchers.

Anyone wishing to register as an Active or Creative Kids provider must do so at www.service.nsw.gov.au.

Registrations for vouchers are also available on the website.
