Working with Children (WWC) Checks

WORKING WITH CHILDREN CHECKS

Current members and new members (over the age of 18) on joining the Society may be required to complete a Volunteers working with children check (depending on your role in the Society), which can be done online at http://www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au/Working-with-children/Working-With-Children-Check/apply/apply 

Volunteer WWC checks are free of charge.
On completion of the online form, you will be issued with a receipt number which should be written on your membership application (or for current members paying membership, emailed to the Society Registrar (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
You will need to take this number to your local Roads and Maritime Services to prove your identity. Your clearance number will be sent to you and must be provided to the Society Registrar along with your date of birth.
If you already have a working with children number, this can be used. You will not have to undergo a new check.
The working with children check lasts for five years. The Registrar will keep a record of all checks and members will be notified when they are required to carry out this process again.
If you do not have access to a computer, please arrange a time to meet with the Registrar to carry out the online application at the theatre.
Please note, no adult member who has been informed they are required to provide the WWC clearance will be permitted to carry out tasks or activities until this clearance has been provided.
