Each year the Department for Child Protection provides family-based carers with an activity grant, so that you can support the child or young person in your care to participate in a cultural, recreational or social activity of their choice.

This year’s activity grant will be $100, and you can expect to begin receiving the payment from Thursday 10 September 2020.

We understand that this year has been financially difficult for many families, and we hope that the activity grant will help you to plan and enjoy an outing or activity with the child or young person in your care.
