Sports vouchers to support families in the Territory and future stars

0

Future sports stars and families are the winners, as the territory’s Labor Government is making it easier for children and young people to participate in sport and other recreational activities, through the Sports Vouchers scheme.

The $6 million annual program ensures that playing sports and participating in recreational and cultural activities is sustainable and affordable for families, reducing the cost of living.

The $100 sports vouchers are available twice a year for every child enrolled in an urban school from transition to grade 12, including home-schooled children.

Vouchers can be redeemed at over 300 registered sports, active recreation and cultural providers, including Learn to Swim, Music and Language programs.

Children under five who are not enrolled in transition or school are eligible for a $100 voucher to learn to swim twice a year.

Vouchers can be redeemed for registration and membership fees at any registered activity provider.

Applications for the second semester of 2022 are now open and available for registration until May 22, 2023.

Applications can be made online at [https://www.grantsnt.nt.gov.au] or by contacting the provider of the activity for which the child wishes to register.

Quote from Sports Minister Kate Worden:

“Territory Labor ensures that our young children remain active in sporting and cultural activities, which are so important for their physical and mental development.

“Children should not miss out on their chance to participate or become future sporting champions, while we can help families better manage the cost of these activities.

“Importantly, we continue to increase the number of providers participating in the program, providing more opportunities for children and families to find the activities they want and need to help them grow as as individuals and to participate fully in our society.
