Working With Children Check (WWCC)

  • Child Protection Working With Children Check (WWCC)

    Safeguarding children and young people is everyone's business. Life Saving Victoria and affiliated clubs have had to fully comply with the Child Safe Standards sine 1 January 2017.

    It is imperative that we provide a safe and supportive environment for children and young people and because of the nature of our club facilities, Fairhaven SLSC requires ALL members aged 18 and over (no matter the level of contact with children under 18) to hold a current Working With Children Check (WWCC). WWCC's are free for volunteers and last for 5 years.

  • Providing WWCC Evidence

    A copy of your WWCC Assessment Notice will be mailed to the Club from the Department of Justice once we have been correctly nominated as a place of volunteering. Your WWCC card is insufficient evidence that this has been done.
