Active Kids Vouchers – Get Yours Today!

share

Data from the NSW Population Health Survey shows that 75 per cent of children in NSW are not meeting the daily recommended level of physical activity, which is 60 active minutes each day. Further, 22 per cent of children aged 5-16 years are reported as being overweight or obese.

The Active Kids program, launched in 2018, aims to increase participation of school-enrolled children in sport and physical activity by providing parents with vouchers to help cover the cost of registration and membership fees. Active Kids is funded until June 2023 so there’s still plenty of opportunity to be a part of the program.

Families can now access two separate $100 vouchers for each school-enrolled child. This means more kids can get involved in physical activity and learn healthy habits from a young age. You can apply for your vouchers here: Apply for an Active Kids voucher | Service NSW. The vouchers may be used with an approved Active Kids provider.

Premier Dominic Perrottet encouraged NSW families to use their vouchers by diving into the new First Lap learn to swim program. “Now that sport is back up and running, we’re keen to remind parents to use these excellent NSW Government cost-saving measures so kids can get back to playing sport and learning to swim without breaking the family budget,” Mr Perrottet said.

“With COVID restrictions stopping sport for several months, around 430,000 children are yet to use their Active Kids vouchers this year, meaning there is around $86 million worth of vouchers still up for grabs.”
