2017 AFLQ VOLUNTEER AWARD NOMINATIONS

2017 AFLQ VOLUNTEER AWARD NOMINATIONS

Nominations are now open for the 2017 AFL Queensland Volunteer and Coach Awards.

http://www.aflq.com.au/volunteering/

Volunteers and coaches are the lifeblood of Australian football. Without them, we simply would not have a game.

They work for the love of the football, not pay checks or praise. Be it mentoring and encouraging our juniors, turning the snags on the match day BBQ or tending the club books.

The AFL Queensland Volunteer and Coach Awards provide our Queensland football community with the opportunity to recognise outstanding contributions to the game by nominating the people who work tirelessly to bring our sport to life.

A State Volunteer of the Year will be chosen from the nominations. He or she will receive a grand final package for two that includes air fares, accommodation and grand final tickets. They will also attend a grand final function and take part in the official AFL Grand Final Parade.

Get Started Vouchers Open 25 January 2017

Queensland Government’s Get Started Vouchers program opens 25 January 2017. Please note important changes to the program, specifically around the referral agent process.           

What is Get Started Vouchers?
Get Started Vouchers is an initiative to provide up to $150 to eligible children and young people, to help pay for sport or recreation club membership and/or participation fees through registered clubs.  

If the child/young person or their parent/carer/guardian holds a valid Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card, they can apply online as soon as the round opens. These children do not need to use the referral agent process. 

Updates to the referral agent process
The department is changing the referral agent process to ensure that children and young people who can least afford the costs to participate are supported by Get Started Vouchers.  To ensure that the vouchers are going to those families most in need, a new referral agent process will be implemented from Round 9.   

The department now requires that eligible referral agents register with the department to be able to refer children and young people for a voucher.  Further details regarding referral agent criteria and eligibility requirements are on our website, along with fact sheets for parents and referral agents. Simply Google ‘Get Started Vouchers’ or go to the information here www.qld.gov.au/recreation/sports/funding/getinthegame/getstarted/refer/. 

A child/young person can be referred to the program by a registered referral agent if they have access to a Health Care Card/Pensioner Concession Card, where there are significant issues that prevent the parent/carer/guardian from applying.  

These issues may include: internet or computer access, computer illiteracy, Living in rural/remote areas with limited internet capability. 

Further to this, referral agents may apply on behalf of a parent/carer/guardian where they are aware of the need for financial support to join their local sport or recreation club, and are assisting in their professional capacity. 

For further information on the Get Started Vouchers program, please refer to the website - www.qld.gov.au/recreation/sports/funding/getinthegame/getstarted/

If you have any specific questions about the program then please email the team at getstarted@npsr.qld.gov.au
