Active Kids Information For Providers

Help kids in NSW get active

Did you know that majority of children in NSW are not meeting the daily recommended levels of physical activity? Your organisation can help make a difference by increasing participation and changing their physical behaviours.

The Active Kids program provides families with vouchers to help cover costs towards their children’s membership and registration fees for sport and recreation.  As an approved Active Kids Provider, you will be able to accept Active Kids vouchers and redeem them through Service NSW. 

From 1 July 2023, parents, guardians and carers of all school-age children are eligible for a $50 Active Kids voucher to use towards sport and active recreation costs.

Help children in NSW keep healthy and active. Register to become an approved Active Kids Provider today so you can start accepting vouchers.
