All parent helpers and volunteers are now required to obtain a Working with Children Check in accordance with Department of Education and Early Childhood Development policy. The Working with Children (WWC) Check creates a mandatory minimum checking standard across Victoria. The WWC Check helps to keep children safe by preventing those who pose a risk to the safety of children from working with them, in either paid or volunteer work. Applications are completed online then finalised at the post office. The Working with Children Check is free to parent volunteers.
