The Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing has announced that the first allocation of vouchers in Round 9 have now been fully allocated, however due to the high demand a new allocation of vouchers will be available on 2 February 2017 from 9.15am.  Vouchers will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Please advise any families who missed out on the first allocation that more vouchers will be available from 9.15am on 2 February 2017.

For those who are not familiar with the program, Get Started Vouchers assist children and young people who can least afford or may otherwise benefit from joining a sport or recreation club by providing a voucher of $150 to help pay for membership and/or registration fees.

Vouchers received by Groups should be forwarded to the Branch Support Office to be redeemed by 12 May 2017.
