Penrith Families Benefit from $500 Before and Afterschool Care Vouchers

Stuart Ayres OOSH 2

Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith visited Cubby OOSH at Kingswood Public School to encourage parents and carers of children enrolled in primary schools in Penrith to apply for their Before and After School Care vouchers (BASC).

These vouchers are possible through the NSW Government’s $155 million program for Before and After School Care services to provide greater support and access to BASC services.

The $500 voucher will assist families who use BASC services by contributing to the parent gap fee component of their session fees.

Stuart Ayres said this program will be a much needed support for working families.

“It’s been challenging for families with school-aged children, many have had to juggle the demands of supervising their kids’ education while working remotely,” Stuart Ayres said.

“These vouchers will help ease the financial burden and allow greater access to BASC services.”

Families can access the vouchers online via MyServiceNSW account, in the app or by visiting their nearest Service NSW Centre.
