WWCC Submission

As per the Child Protection (Working With Children) Act 2012 No 51 (‘the Act’)  employers are required to verify all new WWCCs and renewed WWCCs for persons working in child-related work (paid and unpaid). The Diocese of Wollongong is a recognised employer by the Office of the Children’s Guardian for the purposes of the working with children check. Staff at the Office of the Bishop are responsible for the centralised collection, verification, and retention of records related to the WWCC for persons in parishes and ministries (outside of Catholic Education Diocese of Wollongong and CatholicCare) who are undertaking paid or unpaid child related work. To learn more, we invite you to visit the Office of Professional Standards and Safeguarding Resources and Information page.

The Working With Children Check is one of the tools available to keep children safe.  Any information provided, obtained and verified is completed in accordance with The Act.
