Sport & Recreation Qld

qld gov-fairplay vouchers

Is your child ready to return to play after COVID-19?

To help kick off the COVID-safe restart of sport and recreation in Queensland, the next round of the FairPlay program will open on Wednesday 6 July 2020.

FairPlay assists children and young people from low-income families to participate in sport and active recreation.

Eligible parents, caregivers and guardians can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 for their child to use for sport and active recreation membership, registration or participation fees.

This round of the program is part of the Queensland Government’s $51.3 million Sport and Recreation COVID SAFE Restart Plan.

Don’t forget, if you have a Round 2 FairPlay voucher, the expiry dates have been extended until 11 November 2020 for parents to present to activity providers, coinciding with the closure of this current round.

Vouchers can be used with registered activity providers listed on the FairPlay website—there are over 4,500 providers to choose from.

For more information or to apply for a voucher, visit qld.gov.au/fairplayvouchers.

Important Program Updates

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Round 2 voucher expiry dates have been extended until 11 November 2020 for parents to present to registered activity providers, coinciding with the closure of this current round. If parents have a Round 2 voucher, they should keep it until sport and recreation activities restart.

> Activity providers must redeem vouchers by 25 November 2020.

All registered activity providers have been asked, where possible, to retain the funds and credit participants once activities do resume. If a child would like to participate elsewhere, parents should talk to their club and ask if they may be able to transfer the remainder of the voucher amount directly to the new organisation.

If an organisation has already redeemed FairPlay vouchers, they should retain these funds and credit participants when activities resume.

Organisations can also give the unredeemed voucher back to the parent or guardian, if they ask.

As part of the FairPlay terms and conditions for activity providers, organisations cannot provide a refund for any part of a voucher to a parent or guardian. However, they can be guided by their own internal refund policies for the remaining registration or membership fees.

> The latest round of FairPlay opens on 6 July 2020 and closes on 7 October 2020 (unless all vouchers are issued). 

Funding

Parents, carers or guardians can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 for eligible children and young people. 

These vouchers can be used toward the cost of membership, registration and/or participation fees for eligible activities with registered physical activity providers.

There is a limit of one voucher per child, per calendar year.

Application Process

Applications can be made through the QGrants online system. To apply for a voucher, visit qld.gov.au/fairplayvouchers.

Parents, carers and guardians will need to:

·         check the eligibility of their children against program criteria

·         check that the activity (or similar activity) is registered as part of the activity provider directory

·         read and understand the FairPlay application terms and conditions

·         have access to the QGrants online system (families that have previously applied for a Get Started Voucher can use the same QGrants account).
