Do you have kids? Would you like a $100 towards the costs of sports activities this year? From  January 31 parents, guardians and carers of children residing and participating in sport and other approved physical activities in NSW can apply for the voucher online through their MyServiceNSW account. They can be   redeemed at local sporting clubs or approved providers.

Whether your child participates in summer or winter sports or activities, Active Kids vouchers can be used until 31 December so there is no rush to claim.

‘With household budgets continually stretched, we want to ensure every child has access to sports and active participation for their health and wellbeing,’ said a spokesperson for NSW sports.

To apply for the NSW Government’s new Active Kids voucher to help with the costs visit sport NSW or phone Service NSW on 13 77 88.
