All the NSW Vouchers to Get Excited About

  • Parents Only

"Thank you for homeschooling". Yes, we heard it too! NSW Premier, Dominic Perrotett announced that NSW families will receive an extra $250 in vouchers for homeschooling our kids for the last four months - hooray! And that's not even the last of the freebies on offer to make post-lockdown life extra sweet.

A number of NSW vouchers are up for grabs for NSW families to help us and our community post-lockdown so get ready to enjoy some free cash!

NSW Vouchers to Get Excited About

First Lap Learn to Swim Voucher

If you've got little ones currently learning how to swim (or keen to get in the water), you can save $100 off the cost of their swimming lessons. The First Lap Learn to Swim Voucher will be available from December 2021 and applies to parents/guardians with children aged three to six to put towards the cost of swimming lessons. 

Dine & Discover Vouchers Extended

If you haven't already used your Dine & Discover Vouchers, you're about to enjoy $350 of dining and discovering in NSW. In a bid to ensure the NSW economy can recover quickly in the wake of the extended lockdown, Mr Perrottet has announced that households will receive an extra $250 in vouchers, which can be used towards accommodation or the 'discover' component of the Dine & Discover scheme. 

The vouchers will be made available through Service NSW in March 2022 for any families who had school-aged children in 2021. The $250 will be split into five $50 vouchers, which can be spent on recreation and accommodation, but not dining.

In addition to funding the NSW economy once again, the vouchers are a token to say thank you to all the families throughout NSW who homeschooled during the extended Delta lockdown - boy do we deserve it! 

Stay & Rediscover Voucher

Another boost for NSW families and the economy is on the way with the Stay & Rediscover Voucher Scheme. The Stay & Discover vouchers will also be available via Service NSW in March 2022 and are offering NSW families $50 to put towards the cost of booking accommodation in 2022 - start planning that holiday!

Eligible accommodation providers with a physical location in Sydney can also register for Stay & Rediscover now.

Creative Kids & Active Kids Vouchers

And don't forget about your Creative Kids and Active Kids Vouchers! Both programs offer NSW families $100 to put towards creative and active classes for school-aged children so start booking!
