The Victorian Government has introduced a new checking system under the Working with Children Act 2005, which will affect some people who work or volunteer with children.
FReeZA providers are responsible for ensuring that they comply with regulations under the Working With Children Act 205 and apply for a Working with Children Check where required.
The Working with Children Check is one of a range of government initiatives designed to assist in the protection of Victorian children from harm by checking a person’s criminal history for serious sexual, violent, or drug offences and findings from professional disciplinary bodies.
Working with children checks are being phased in over the next five years, commencing in April 2006. For more information or to apply for a Working With Children Check please visit http://www.justice.vic.gov.au/workingwithchildren (external link) or contact the Working With Children Information Line on 1300 652879.
