Who is not eligible to be a KidSport Financial Assessor
The following people/organisations cannot become KidSport Financial
Assessors: local leaders/individuals, clubs, doctors, universities,
metropolitan schools, PCYCs or YMCAs.
The reasons for not including these people/organisations vary but are
generally around them not being able to make a financial assessment of
the family or running programs/clubs themselves which presents a
Why regional schools are eligible but metropolitan schools are not
Teachers are not always in a position to determine a family’s
financial status and in the metropolitan area there are other more
suitable agencies which can fulfil this role. For this reason, Sport and
Recreation (WA) has decided to restrict metropolitan schools from
becoming KidSport Financial Assessors.
It is, however, acknowledged that in some regional areas the local
school is the only organisation in a position to recognise and support
families experiencing financial hardship to access KidSport funding. For
this reason regional schools will be accepted as KidSport Financial
Assessors if recommended by the local government.
