As from 1st July 2019, there is a significant change to ‘working with children’ checks (commonly called police clearances or criminal history checks) that are required prior to working with children.

Even if you’ve had a police check, you’ll need a new check if you want to work or volunteer with children.

Everyone who works or volunteers with children must have a valid check, by law, before 1 July 2019.

It’s about helping to keep children safe in our communities. You can use your current Criminal History Check until 1 July 2020 (if still current), but you’ll need the new check before that time.

Please read the attached document for further information.
