3. Who is involved in the Working with Children Check (WWCC) process for the Archdiocese?
The Screening and Verification Authority is the central coordination point for all checks for the Catholic Archdiocese of Adelaide as well as some other affiliated Catholic organisations.
The Department of Human Services (DHS) is a state funded department who conducts the check through an electronic process.
The Authorised Personnel at individual locations, also known as Nominated Authorising Persons are nominated by the Archdiocese to assist in the raising of the Initiation Check Request Form (ICRF) and the verification of the individual’s identity.
The Individual, once the check is initiated, is required to go online and complete the DHS electronic application.
