Working with Children Check

The Working with Children Check (WWCC) is a comprehensive criminal record check for people in child-related work or child-related volunteering in Australia which lasts for 5 years. The WWCC aims to increase the safety of children in our community.

All paid employees of RPS P&C are required to have and maintain a valid WWCC.

RPS P&C Volunteers in certain roles are required to have a Volunteers WWCC.
