Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program for 2020-21 is now open

The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program for 2020-21 is now open for applications!


The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program allocates $4 million over four years to assist sporting clubs across NSW in the purchase and maintenance of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs).

An AED is a life saving device which delivers a controlled shock to an individual experiencing cardiac arrest, increasing their chances of survival.

The Local Sport Defibrillator Grant Program provides NSW sports clubs and councils the opportunity to acquire an AED package for their club or sports facility at a reduced cost.

Sporting organisations and councils will be able to choose from a panel of approved AED Panel Service Providers and a variety of AED packaged services with the level of customer service that meets their needs.

An AED package will include:

  • An AED

  • AED familiarisation instruction (within 28 days of delivery)

  • A minimum of six years of essential AED maintenance

For full details of what an AED package includes, visit the Frequently Asked Questions.

AED Panel Service Providers, AED products and services are required to meet and maintain minimum requirements under the panel contract with the Office of Sport. Sporting organisations and councils must rely on their own enquiries to the suitability of the AED Panel Service Provider they engage.
