The Working with Children Check (WWCC) is a State Government requirement which was introduced several years ago. It is a current check and ongoing cross-checking of criminal records for sex, drug or violence offences, with notification to our Club and Life Saving Victoria.
Keeping children safe is not just a moral obligation for Life Saving Victoria and its members as the state of Victoria has now legislated a process aimed at formally protecting children (U18) from physical and sexual harm. Therefore to ensure our members are operating within the legal framework, it is imperative that all members over 18 years obtain the WWCC.
When you receive your official WWCC, club’s must sight your card so they have an updated record of club members with the WWCC. Many clubs are photocopying the WWCC of all members to ensure they have completed the various liability requirements of the WWCC.The WWCC is valid for five (5) years. You will receive a letter explaining how to renew your card prior to it expiring.Please note: To update your WWCC details in the system, please email firstname.lastname@example.org your name, Member ID, and WWCC details.
The WWCC looks for criminal activity relevant to the physical and sexual safety of children under 18 years of age. If a member has their application denied, they are issued with a Negative Notice by the Victorian Department of Justice. The member (applicant) and Life Saving Victoria’s CEO will be informed. It is important to understand that Life Saving Victoria maintains strict adherence to privacy legislation which regulates such personal information being broadcast to a wider audience.If a member does have their application denied, they cannot be a member of the Kennett River Surf Life Saving Club or Life Saving Victoria.
