Get Started “FairPlay” | Government Sport Vouchers
Are you looking to find out more about FairPlay Government Sport Vouchers?
FairPlay is an initiative under the Queensland Government’s Activate! Queensland 2019-2029 strategy to support regular participation in physical activity, by reducing the cost for children and young people from low income families.
Who is eligible for the FairPlay Government Sport Vouchers?
Parents, carers or guardians can apply for a voucher valued up to $150 for their child/young person. These vouchers can be used towards the cost of membership, registration and/or participation fees for eligible activities with registered physical activity providers.
FairPlay will replace the Get Started Vouchers program. Support will also be available for Queensland families who struggle with the cost of regular participation, but have not previously met the eligibility criteria for a voucher.
Applications will be available in 2 rounds per year from July 2019.
Round 1 of FairPlay will open for applications on 31 July 2019.
Registered referral agents assist families in genuine financial need to access FairPlay vouchers.
If you have previously been approved as a referral agent for the Get Started Vouchers program, you do not need to re-register for FairPlay. The government will contact existing providers with further information about Round 1 of FairPlay.
All new referral agents will need to complete an online registration for FairPlay.

More information about FairPlay will become available online before Round 1 opens on 31 July 2019.
