Get Started is one of three funding programs that comprise the Queensland Government’s Get in the Game initiative to support sport and recreation at the grassroots level. 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 online for a voucher valued up to $150 online, which can be redeemed at a sport or recreation club registered with Get Started. You can use the Get Started voucher to help pay your Blackstone registration fees.
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
The next round will open on 27 January 2016. Check out our webpage for more details or if you require further information on Get Started, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact a local Sport and Recreation Services office on 1300 656 191.
