Referral Agents

Children are eligible for KidSport if they are aged 5 – 18 years and have a health care or pension concession card. Alternatively, children can be referred to the program through an identified referral agent such as school teachers, doctors, police, social workers or local area coordinators.

Referral agents can assist with the identification of eligible children who can benefit from KidSport. They can also assist with the completion of application forms and their lodgement with local governments on behalf of parents.

If you wish to refer children to the program you will need to be recognised as a referral agent by contacting the Town of Port Hedland Club Development Officer.
