1. What is a Working with Children Check (WWCC)?
A Working with Children Check (WWCC) is a part of a screening process that is currently electronically initiated by the Screening and Verification Authority on behalf of the Catholic locations under the auspices of the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide.
The check itself is carried out by the Department of Human Services (DHS), Screening Unit and involves the gathering and assessing of national criminal history as well as information held by the SA Government relating to child protection issues or other care concerns raised with them.
The outcomes of the checks provided by DHS are considered and assist the Archdiocese in making an informed decision about an individual’s suitability for engagement as an Employee, Volunteer or Contractor.
