Currently, all Centre and Club committee members, chief officials, coaches and volunteers without children at the Centre require a current WWC Check.
Now with technology playing a huge part in our children’s lives, the WWC Check will change to incorporate electronic, written and oral communication to protect children from on-line predators. This change will take effect from 1 August 2017.
For Knox LAC, this means that whoever manages websites and social media for the Centre or its Clubs must also have a current WWC Check.
In preparation for the new season, we will be working with committees to ensure appropriate people have a current WWC Check.
To apply for the WWC Check (it’s free!), please go to www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au.
If you have any questions regarding the WWC Check, please contact Rebecca Prys at firstname.lastname@example.org.
