The future looks bright for young explorers and sports enthusiasts in NSW, thanks to the latest initiative from the Minns Labor Government. With a fresh focus on fostering active and creative pursuits among children, a new voucher scheme is set to launch in Term 1 of 2024. This means-tested program aims to make sports and other active recreation activities more accessible to families across NSW.

Twice each year, at the commencement of terms 1 and 3, eligible families will receive vouchers worth $50. This initiative not only continues the legacy of the Active Kids program but also expands its reach, ensuring more activities are covered under the new scheme. It’s a comprehensive approach to keeping our kids engaged, active, and healthy.

How to Secure Your Active Kids Vouchers

Starting Term 1, 2024, the NSW Government, in collaboration with the Commonwealth Government, will begin issuing the new Active and Creative Kids vouchers. This initiative targets NSW families eligible for the Family Tax Benefit Part A, enabling nearly 600,000 school-aged children (out of a total 1.35 million in NSW) to benefit from a wide array of active and creative pursuits.

Each voucher, valued at $50, will be available twice annually, aligning with the start of terms 1 and 3. This ensures that children have continuous opportunities throughout the year to explore a variety of activities, from sports to creative arts, previously supported by the Active Kids program.

With an annual investment of approximately $28 million, this revamped voucher program is a testament to the NSW Government's dedication to nurturing the physical and creative development of young residents. By reducing financial barriers, this initiative promises to enrich the lives of families and encourage a culture of active and healthy living among the youth of NSW.
