FairPlay referral agents

FairPlay referral agents


Joining a sport or other physical
activity organisation is a great way for kids to keep active. But some kids can’t
join because the costs get in the way. Families who need a hand can apply for
FairPlay vouchers, which provide up to $150 towards fees to join a registered Activity Provider. Families with a valid Department of Human Services Health Care Card, or Pensioner Concession Card, can
apply for a voucher when a round is open. Registered referral agents can help
other families in genuine need of financial support to apply. To be a
referral agent, you need to be a professional working with children, like
a youth justice worker or a school guidance officer. You need to have known
the child professionally for at least three months, you can’t refer your own child for a voucher, and you can’t stipulate which
Activity Provider the child should use the voucher at. If you would like to be a
referral agent, and you meet the criteria, you need to register online. When you
register you’ll need to nominate the number of children you would like to
refer. There’s only a limited number of vouchers so nominate the exact number of children you have identified, not an estimate. You’ll also need to ensure
there is a registered Activity Provider where the child can use the voucher. When you submit the online form, it is sent to us to check if you’re eligible. We will
email you to confirm your registration or ask you for more information if we
need it. Once you’re approved as a referral agent, the process is complete,
and there’s no need to register again. If you need to change your details or the
number of vouchers you have nominated, email your changes to our team. Before
each round opens, we will email you to ask how many children you would like
to refer to the upcoming round, so please respond as soon as possible. When numbers are finalised, you’ll receive an email containing links to complete the voucher
applications or you may be placed on a waiting list. If families you are helping
are able to complete the online application themselves, forward the link
to them directly. If a family needs help applying, you can help the parent
create a QGrants account. If needed, you can also create your own QGrants account to apply on their behalf. If you’re not sure how to create an
account, we have a ‘How to Apply’ video that shows you what to do. Thanks for helping children and young
people be active. Authorised by the Queensland Government,
