How do I use my voucher?

Present your voucher to the activity provider that you nominated when you applied for the voucher. Each voucher has a code that is linked to the nominated provider so it can’t be used anywhere else.

The voucher code represents payment (or part payment) of registration/membership fees only. The voucher code must be presented to the activity provider when registering.

Activity providers must be provided the voucher code by the voucher holder. The Victorian Government cannot provide the voucher codes directly to a club.
