Access All Areas supports eligible City of Swan residents of all ages and abilities to participate in sport, recreation and leisure activities (such as art classes, swimming, music, drama, scouts and horse riding) to improve their health and wellbeing.

The program aims to support individuals and families who are experiencing financial hardship and/or barriers to participation in community based activities. Eligible individuals can receive up to $150 per financial year (July-June) towards an approved activity, with fees being paid directly to activity recoupers. Funds are provided on a one off basis and should not be considered ongoing.

How do I apply for an Access All Areas voucher?

Issuers

A number of community service organisations across the City of Swan are registered Access All Areas Issuers. Individuals are required to meet with an Issuing agency, so that they can be assessed against the eligibility criteria. If an individual is eligible to receive Access All Areas, they will receive a voucher which they can use towards an approved activity.

Please note: The City of Swan does not issue Access All Areas vouchers. Applications must be made through a registered Issuer.

Recoupers

A number of activity providers in the City of Swan accept Access All Areas vouchers. These clubs and organisations are called Recoupers. Once an individual receives a voucher, they are required to use it within three months, at their selected activity. Recoupers must be located within the City of Swan, except where the activity or program is otherwise not available or accessible within the City.

Please note: The City will pay the fees directly to the Recouper once the individual has handed over their voucher. If the total cost of the activity exceeds $150, the individual is responsible for paying the outstanding balance.
