What’s this about?
More than 1.3 million people have a Working With Children Check (WWCC) clearance in NSW.
Nearly 30,000 organisations and individuals are also registered to verify that the person they have engaged is not barred from child-related work.
The Child Protection (Working With Children) Act 2012(external link) is due for review to determine whether the:
- policy objectives of the Act are still valid
- legislation is still appropriate for achieving those objectives.
The Office of the Children’s Guardian is seeking feedback from individuals and organisations.
The outcomes of the review will inform a report to NSW Parliament and help the NSW Government to further strengthen the WWCC scheme.
