FairPlay Vouchers


FairPlay

With over $1.7 million of vouchers available, this investment will help get local kids active and involved in outdoor activities.
These vouchers support young Queenslanders who might otherwise miss out to get active with their friends through sport and active recreation.
It also helps our community’s clubs to grow in strength and numbers.
If you have a Centrelink health care card, a pensioner card, or have a combined annual family income less than $55,000, you could be eligible for a $150 voucher to help cover the costs of your kid's active recreation fees.
