Financial Assistance - Get Started Program

What is Get Started?

Get Started assists children and young people who can least afford or may otherwise benefit from joining a sport or recreation club. Eligible children and young people can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 (GST exclusive), which can be redeemed at a sport or recreation club registered with Get Started.

Who can apply?

The following applicants are eligible for a Get Started voucher: · children and young people from the age of five and under the age of 18 who hold or whose parent, guardian or carer holds a Centrelink Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card and are residents of Queensland · other children or young people identified by two referral agents.

How do I get a voucher?

You will be able to apply for a voucher under the 7th round of the program in January 2016.

If a child is eligible for Get Started, they are not guaranteed a voucher. The funding will be distributed in two rounds each year on a first come, first serve basis. Once the allocation for each round is exhausted, the program will close and no further vouchers will be offered for that round.

How do I use the voucher?

If you wish to use this voucher you must present it when you pay your Springwood AFC rego fees. You will then be discounted the voucher amount. If you do not have a voucher on hand you must pay your regos fees in full first & then once you receive your voucher, hand it to the club register with your bank account details & the club will organise a refund into your account asap.
