Affordability can be a key driver to our youngsters’ participation in physical activity.
Parents, carers or guardians can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 for their child, which can be used towards sport and active recreation membership, registration, or participation fees with registered activity providers.
Round 6 is now open, with applications closing on 23 March 2022 (or earlier if fully allocated). Note there is a limit of 1 voucher per child per calendar year.
You can apply if your child:
- is a Queensland resident aged from 5 to 17 years (inclusive) at the time of application
- did not already receive a FairPlay voucher in the calendar year
- holds, or whose parent, carer or guardian holds, a valid Services Australia Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card with the child’s name on it.
If you are experiencing financial hardship but don’t meet the eligibility criteria, you can seek to apply through a registered referral agent (see FairPlay website for details).
You will need a QGrants account to apply – you will need to create an account if you don’t already have one. Information on how to easily create your QGrants account is also available on the FairPlay website.
