Applications are open for FairPlay
Is your child involved with a sporting group or organisation in the South Burnett… you may be eligible for a FairPlay voucher!
FairPlay aims to support regular participation in physical activity, by reducing the cost of sport and active recreation for children and young people from low-income families. Applications for FairPlay vouchers have now opened.
Parents, carers or guardians can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 for eligible children and young people. These vouchers can be used toward the cost of membership, registration and/or participation fees for eligible activities with registered physical activity providers.
To be eligible, the child or young person must be a Queensland resident and aged between 5 and 17 years (on the day of application).
The child or young person must also either hold, or have a parent, carer or guardian who holds a valid Department of Human Services Health Care Card (including those on JobSeeker payments) or Pensioner Concession Card with the child’s name on it or be identified for a FairPlay voucher by a registered referral agent. There is a limit of one voucher per child/young person per calendar year.
Applications close Wednesday 7 October 2020.
