The NSW Government has announced the Active Kids and Creative Kids voucher swap initiative.
The Active Kids program provides a $100 voucher for parents, guardians and carers of each school-enrolled child to use towards sport and active recreation costs each year.
The Creative Kids program provides a $100 voucher for parents, guardians and carers of each school-enrolled child aged 4.5 to 18 years. The voucher may be used with a registered activity provider for registration, participation and tuition costs for a range of creative activities, including arts, drama, dance, digital design, coding and music lessons.
It used to be the case that Active Kids vouchers were strictly for sport and active recreation, while Creative Kids vouchers had to be used solely for creative pursuits, but now families will be able to use the two vouchers interchangeably from Term 2, allowing kids to do more of what they love.
The vouchers have proven very popular across NSW, with almost 7 million vouchers already downloaded and redeemed.
The voucher swap program will commence from the start of Term 2 (26 April) and only apply to:
- $100 Active Kids voucher for sport and recreation costs including school holiday programs.
- $100 Creative Kids voucher for arts and cultural activities costs including school holiday classes and workshops.
Families can download their child’s vouchers via the Service NSW app or website and by calling 13 77 88. For further information, visit: https://www.service.nsw.gov.au/services/concessions-rebates-and-assistance/vouchers
