Visit the Victorian Government website for more information about the Working with Children Card Check.


wwcc-cardIn 2006, the Victorian Government introduced a new checking system to help protect children under 18 years of age from physical or sexual harm.


The Working with Children (WWC) Check creates a mandatory minimum checking standard across Victoria. The WWC Check helps to keep children safe by preventing those who pose a risk to the safety of children from working with them, in either paid or volunteer work.


If you work or volunteer with children you may need to apply for a WWC Check. Employers, volunteer organisations and agencies must ensure that any of their staff or volunteers who need a WWC Check have applied.


Everybody who requires a WWC Check must have a WWC Check.
