What is Active Kids?

The NSW Government will provide a $100 active kids voucher to parents/guardians of school enrolled children. The $100 voucher can be used for registration and participation costs for sport and fitness activities.
The initiative aims to reduce barriers to participation and help change the physical activity behaviours of children and young people in NSW.
The program starts from 31 January 2018.

NSW Gov Active Kids Voucher

Who is eligible to claim the voucher?

Every child (4.5 – 18 years old) enrolled in school from Kindergarten to Year 12 will be eligible for an Active Kids Voucher. This includes those who are home-schooled or enrolled in secondary school education at TAFE NSW.
It will not be means tested and one voucher will be available for every child in the family annually.
There will be no limits on the number of applications per family, as long as every child is enrolled in school.

How long are vouchers valid?

Parents can apply for a voucher from 31 January 2018. Vouchers can be used until 31 December so there is no rush. Vouchers shall expire at the end of the calendar year. 2019 vouchers and beyond will commence from 1 January each year and expire on 31 December.
