Vouchers help parents cover kid's sporting costs
NINDERRY MP Dan Purdie is urging families to take advantage of the new Fair Play vouchers, which provide those eligible with $150 to assist with the costs of sport and recreation activities.
Applications for the vouchers, which replace the Get Started initiative, open today.
"This is a great way to encourage participation and help reduce financial barriers which can restrict young people's access to club and sports memberships,” Mr Purdie said.
Bli Bli Little Athletics club registrar Amy Smith said the vouchers were popular with families unable to afford to sign up their children for a sport or club activity.
