From 1 July 2019, people working or volunteering with children in South Australia must, by law, have a valid child-related clearance.
The new working with children check (WWCC) that is being introduced from 1 July 2019 replaces the current system, where people can have either a Department of Human Services (DHS) child-related employment screening, or a National Police Certificate assessed by their employer/volunteer-involving organisation.
What does that mean for Port Adelaide Cycling Club?
We encourage all volunteers to get a WWCC. Checks for volunteers are free of charge and we are able to initate these checks directly via the DCSI portal on your behalf. THis will ensure that confirmation of WWCC check is registered with the Club, and Cycling South Australia. No personal details are shared, just confirmation of your clearance.
How do I get a WWCC?
Send an email to: [email protected] with your name, date of birth and we will initate the request on your behalf.
