NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall today announced that there was only a couple of weeks remaining until parents could claim a $100 voucher for their school-enrolled children thanks to the NSW Government’s new Active Kids program.
Through the program, Mr Marshall said parents, carers and guardians across the region would be able to claim a $100 voucher to put towards the registration and participation costs of sport and active recreation activities for their children.
“With household budgets continually stretched, the government wants to ensure every child has access to sports and active participation for their health and wellbeing,” Mr Marshall said.
“From 31 January, 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 and then redeem the voucher at their local sporting club or approved provider.
“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.
“I’d love to see every child across the Northern Tablelands to be able to use their voucher, so I encourage parents to speak to their local sports club about registering to be an approved provider.”
