The Working With Children Check (WWCC), is mandatory for all active members aged 18 years and over. The WWCC is a State Government requirement which was introduced several years ago. It is a current check, with ongoing cross-checking of criminal records for sex, drug or violence offences. Notifications are then provided to our Club and Life Saving Victoria 

Memberships will not be processed if you do not complete a Working With Children Check.

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 (defined as under 18 years of age) 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.

1. Go to www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au and fill in an online application form.
Note: Before completing the form online, make sure you have a printer of reasonable quality and Adobe Acrobat Reader or Open Office to print a summary of your application.
