Working With Children Check

The Working with Children Act 2005 requires that people who work or volunteer in certain child-related work apply for, and pass, a WWC Check. It aims to strike a balance between protecting children under 18 years of age, promoting volunteering and safeguarding the rights of individuals.

Applicants records are checked for any criminal offences specified in the Act. They are also checked for findings by specified professional disciplinary bodies. Criminal offences not specified in the Act can also be considered if exceptional circumstances exist and there is a significant link between the offence and a risk to the safety of children.
