Active Kids - Group Leaders + Treasurers FAQS

Active Kids vouchers belong to families, and it is up to the families to redeem their own vouchers. Do not accept or ask for Active Kids vouchers or voucher numbers. It is not a responsibility of the Group Leader or Group Treasurer to redeem vouchers.

The Active Kids voucher cannot be backdated or used to short pay previous invoices.

Members can use it as a form of payment against their annual State Membership Fees.

Once they have successfully applied for their Active Kids vouchers via the Service NSW portal, existing Scouts NSW members can redeem their first voucher on the Scouts NSW website from 1 January. Their second voucher can be redeemed any time from 1 July.

Please note – all vouchers must be redeemed with Scouts NSW by December of each year.

note: the NSW Government is changing the Active Kids Voucher program from February 2024, and the above may change.
