As a parent, do you find it difficult to cover the costs of registration or participation fees for your children at your local sport or active recreation club? The Get Started Vouchers program provides assistance for those who need it most. Get Started Vouchers assists children and young people who can least afford, or may otherwise benefit from, joining a sport or active recreation club. Eligible children and young people are presented with a voucher that provides up to $150 to help with the costs for membership and participation fees. The vouchers can be redeemed at a local sport and active recreation club that is registered for the program.
