Child Restraint Fitting/Adjustment Voucher Program

(Back to top)


All children must be safely fastened in the correct child car seat for their age and size. A child who is properly secured in an approved child car seat is less likely to be injured or killed in a car crash than one who is not.

As part of the Local Government Road Safety Program, City of Parramatta Council and TfNSW run a free child restraint fitting/adjustment program which provides the opportunity for residents to obtain a voucher to have their child restraint fitted/adjusted for free by Council’s selected Transport for NSW (TfNSW) authorised fitter (subject to available funding, conditions apply). The voucher includes the installation of a gated buckle if required. Note if any other hardware such as extension straps or anchor bolts are needed, the customer is required to pay the additional cost to the fitter at the time of fitting.

Please note, due to limited funding and to allow Council to assist as many eligible residents as possible, only one voucher per household, can be requested. This voucher will allow for up to four (4) seats to be checked or fitted within the one vehicle, within the one appointment.
Due to funding constraints, the voucher must be redeemed by Saturday 4 March 2023. No extension to this date is possible.
Should you not be able to redeem your voucher before this date, please do not apply for a voucher, as this will take away the opportunity for another to use this important service.
