Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith today announced that Penrith residents can now take advantage of the State Government’s much anticipated Dine & Discover NSW program, thanks to the program going live.
Dine & Discover NSW will be rolled out progressively across NSW, with the first two stages underway.
Stuart Ayres said the $500 million program will boost local businesses.
“To date, over 90 businesses in Penrith have registered and are now accepting vouchers.”
“These vouchers will breathe new life into the local economy and help ease the cost of living for families,” Stuart Ayres said.
“The busy summer period is well and truly over and now is an ideal time to support businesses and encourage customers to get out and about safely.
“This stimulus will bring much needed relief to some of the community’s hardest hit industries. We want businesses to grow and thrive and for workers to stay in jobs.
“Whether it’s a café, restaurant, cinema or gallery, these industries have been hit hard by the pandemic, but these vouchers will encourage more customers to come through the door and spend.
“The vouchers are simple and easy to use, with customers able to spend them via the Service NSW app. The app is seamless, contactless and safe.”
NSW residents will be able to easily apply online to receive their vouchers through the latest version of the Service NSW app and website, and a non-digital solution will be made available to customers who don’t have a smartphone or compatible device.
Every NSW resident aged 18 and over will be eligible for four $25 vouchers worth $100 in total, to spend in participating businesses.
Dine & Discover NSW vouchers will be divided into two categories:
- Two $25 vouchers to be used for eating in at restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and clubs 7 days a week, excluding public holidays.
- Two $25 vouchers to be used for entertainment and recreation, including cultural institutions, live music, and arts venues, available 7 days a week, excluding public holidays.
It’s not too late for businesses to register and vouchers are valid until 30 June 2021.
The vouchers can only be used at eligible businesses that have implemented a COVID Safety Plan and are registered as COVID Safe.
Throughout each week, vouchers will become available in more Local Government Areas.
Customers will receive an email letting them know when it’s their turn to apply for their vouchers, or they can use a simple eligibility checker online.
