Three vouchers worth $50 each, so $150 in total, for each child can be used towards the cost of a range of things for school, for example shoes, backpacks and technology and can now also be used to help cover the cost of school excursions in Term 1 and 2.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke is reminding local families with school-aged children to redeem their NSW Premier’s Back to School vouchers before 30 June.
“I encourage local families to check if they have any unused vouchers in their Service NSW app – and remind them that they have until 30 June 2023 to apply for and redeem their vouchers,” Ms Cooke said.
“So far more than 24,000 vouchers have been redeemed across the electorate saving local families $1,218,249 and helping to support our local small businesses,” Ms Cooke said.
This program is one of many measures from the NSW Liberal and Nationals Government to help ease the cost of living for families across the region and NSW.
In NSW more than 3.5 million vouchers have been downloaded – amounting to a whopping $175 million – but there is still money on the table for families who have not yet redeemed their vouchers.
The Liberal and Nationals Government is working to ease the cost of living for families whether it’s having to buy a new backpack or shoes for school, we know these costs add up for families. Our Back to School vouchers are here to help.
Applying for the vouchers is simple and easy via the Service NSW app, calling Service NSW, or visiting a Service NSW Centre. Businesses that accept vouchers are listed on the Business Finder tool on the Service NSW website.
