Active Kids Voucher Program 2018

What is Active Kids? Active Kids is a program to help NSW families meet the cost of getting their kids into sport and active fitness and recreation activities. The NSW Government will provide a $100 voucher to parents/guardians of school enrolled
children. The $100 voucher can be used for registration and participation costs for sport and fitness activities.

Who is eligible to claim the voucher? Every child (4.5 - 18 years) enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 will be eligible for an Active Kids Voucher. It will not be means tested and one voucher will be available for every child in the family annually over the next four years.

What can the voucher be used for? The voucher can be used for registration or membership fees for structured activities of no less than eight weeks’ duration that provide a moderate to vigorous level of physical activity.

How can I access the voucher? From 31 January 2018, a parent or guardian can apply online at the Government’s Service NSW website - log into your existing Service NSW account or create an account and register each eligible child using their Medicare Card. Once the required information is completed an alpha-numeric voucher code will be provided which can be redeemed for one sport per calendar year.
