Looking for the lowdown on the Creative Kids Voucher for 2024? Well, you've come to the right place! Let's dive into what's new, who's eligible, and a little reminder for you!

Where to Use Your Creative Kids Vouchers in 2024

Coming up with the Minns Labor Government, a reformed Active and Creative Kids voucher scheme will make its debut from Term 1, 2024. This new program, unlike the current $100 voucher system, will provide families with a $50 voucher twice a year, at the beginning of terms 1 and 3. This means continued access to a range of enriching activities without the financial strain!

Who's Eligible For The New Creative Kids Voucher?

In the spirit of community support, the NSW and Commonwealth Governments are joining hands to make sure these new vouchers reach the families that need them most.

If your family is among those receiving the Family Tax Benefit Part A, you're in luck! This inclusion covers almost half of NSW's school-aged children, amounting to around 600,000 of the total 1.35 million.

Applying for New Vouchers in July 2023

Starting from 1 July 2023, parents and guardians will be able to apply for a new $50 Creative Kids voucher, even if your kids haven't yet used their existing 2023 Creative Kids voucher.

This initiative is designed to continue supporting children's creative development throughout the year, so be sure to apply and take advantage of this fantastic opportunity. Remember, each voucher contributes to fostering your child's imagination and creative skills, making it an investment you won't regret. Stay tuned to our page for more updates on how to apply!
