Do you need a new Working with Children Check?

WORK or volunteer in junior sport in the Clarence Valley? Well, you may need a new Working with Children Check.

People who work or volunteer in the sport and recreation sector are being phased into the new Working with Children Check (WWCC) system in NSW from April 2015.

To help this sector prepare for the phase-in process, the Office of the Children's Guardian is running a series of information sessions across regional New South Wales.

Local sports organisations and clubs, paid workers, volunteers and self-employed people involved in junior sport and recreation activities are encouraged to attend the free WWCC information sessions.

The training will cover the WWCC application and verification process, who needs and who does not need a new check and more.

  • WHEN: October 28, 2014
  • TIME: 7-9pm
  • WHERE: Clarence Valley Council Chambers, 2 Prince St Grafton.
  • To find out more and to register for the workshop go to: http://www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au/childsafesports or contact the Office of the Children's Guardian on (02) 9286 7219.
