This month, the Office of Sport provided a Sport and Active Recreation Update.
A recent announcement was made by the NSW Office of Sport, regarding the future of the Active Kids and First Lap voucher programs.
All NSW Sports have been informed children enrolled in school will be eligible for a new $50 Active Kids voucher from 1 July. The new Active Kids voucher will be valid until 31 January 2024.
On 1 February 2024, a new means-tested Active and Creative Kids voucher program will be launched for children enrolled in school. The voucher will be for $50 and will be issued twice a year, at the start of terms 1 and 3. The new program will cover activities currently available under both the Active and Creative Kids voucher programs.
The Office of Sport, Create NSW and Service NSW are working closely together to develop the business and operational model for the new program and we will continue to keep us updated regularly.
In the immediate term, the Office of Sport voucher and communications teams will be focusing on encouraging the redemption of the $100 Active Kids and First Lap vouchers before they expire on 30 June this year.
