The new Working With Children Check
The new Working With Children Check has commenced. However, volunteers (including new volunteers) and those currently employed in the sports and recreation sector don't need to apply until 2015 (Phase-in dates 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2016 (see the phase in schedule). Only people who are starting a new paid job working with children in child-related work will need to apply (before they start work).
You only need ONE Working with Children Check. If you volunteer and have a paid role working with children, the Check for paid workers will cover you for both. Note: A Working With Children Check for paid workers costs $80 for a five year clearance. Volunteer Working With Children Check is free but it only covers unpaid work.
Parents or close relatives of a child who volunteer with a team, program or other activity in which their child usually participates or is a team member. See Fact Sheet Exemptions.
