Parents NSW program vouchers go live today, to ease cost of living

About one million families can now enjoy $250 worth of vouchers, thanks to the NSW Government’s Parents NSW program going live Monday, 7 February.

Eligible families will receive five $50 vouchers which can be redeemed at Discover NSW and Stay NSW registered businesses.

Premier Dominic Perrottet said this program was a big win for households and would help ease the cost of living for busy parents.

“In addition, the Stay NSW voucher program, providing every adult aged 18 and older  with a $50 voucher to spend at registered accommodation providers, will be progressively rolled out from 21 February. Both programs will be implemented using the existing Dine & Discover NSW infrastructure.

“These vouchers are a win-win for industry and families and encourage more families to explore our incredible State and bolster local economies,” said Treasurer Matt Kean.

Minister for Customer Service and Digital Government Victor Dominello said households would be able to apply for both programs via Service NSW.

“Applying is easy and can be done quickly via your Service NSW app, the Service NSW website or by calling 13 77 88 for assistance,” Mr Dominello said.

“It only takes a few seconds to scan the vouchers and reap the rewards. We’ve made the process as simple as possible so families can enjoy a much-earned holiday or a visit to a discover venue.”
