Parents whose incomes have been impacted by the pandemic are being encouraged to apply for a Kids in Sport Scholarship to help get their children back into sport this summer.

Singleton Council has partnered with Singleton Family Support and the Bloomfield Group to deliver one hundred $100 vouchers for vulnerable local families, available in addition to the NSW Government’s Active Kids vouchers. 

Council’s Director Organisation and Community Capacity Vicki Brereton said with local households cutting back where they can afford to, they want to make sure that sport continues to be an essential part of every child’s life by making it a bit more affordable for parents who need some help with membership or the associated costs of participating in sport.   

Brendon Clements, Operations Manager at The Bloomfield Group owned Rix’s Creek Mine, said it was wonderful to be part of an initiative that supports Hunter families.

“Sport is a big part of Singleton and we’re proud to provide assistance for programs that support the health and wellbeing of kids in our community,” he said.

Singleton Family Support will administer the program.
