Working With our Children Checks
In the 2015/2016 season, the Minnows organising committee, in conjunction with advice from SLSA NSW, will be implementing the new NSW Working With Children Check (WWCC) process for all our volunteers, including water safety
We acknowledge that the implementation will put some additional work load on all our volunteers who will need to go to a NSW Service Centre (aka motor registry) to prove their identity, but it will help us ensure the safest environment possible for all our children.
There are 4 main steps to the WWCC process:
Volunteer organisations have collected pieces of paper from people for many years, but most people do not realise that these simply sit in club houses or offices around the country without ever being cross referenced to any records. The WWCC process is a major change that will allow this to occur for the people who are working with all of our children.
