Step 2 – Working with children check requirements
We take our responsibility with respect to Safeguarding children and young people very seriously.
Members who already hold a WWCC can supply their number via email directly to the “Club Secretary”.
Working with Children Check (WWCC)
Good child safe policies and practices are the best way to reduce potential environmental risks and keep kids safer in our organisation and since April 2016 all sporting organisations must comply with the Child Protection legislation. This means that a WWCC is now a prerequisite for anyone in child-related roles, either paid or voluntary.
What is the Working with Children Check?
The WWCC is managed by the Office of the Children’s Guardian and involves a national criminal history check and review of findings of workplace misconduct. The result of a WWCC is either a clearance to work with children for five years, or a bar against working with children. A Check is a prerequisite for anyone in child related work.
Do Surf Life Saving Members need a Working with Children Check?
All NSW Surf Life Saving Club members (over 18 years of age) require a WWCC if they are undertaking a child related role. However, there are a number of exemptions which are explained below.
Exemptions for the Working with Children Check
- Children under the age of 18
- Administrative, clerical, maintenance or ancillary work not ordinarily involving contact with children for extended periods
- Very short term work: not more than a total of 5 days in a calendar year (eg. parent helpers on a BBQ)
- Volunteering by a parent or close relative with a team, program or other activity* in which their child usually participates or is a team member (the vast majority of our Nipper Age Managers fall into this category)
- Co-workers and supervisors where a child works. (eg. patrolling members in the senior Club fall into this category)
The child must be in your specific group on the beach. As long as the child is enrolled in Nippers and regularly attends, their parent/close relative is exempt. This is due to the fact that Nippers activities happen on the same day, and at the same location.
*Other activity – The child must be in the same group for the parent/close relative exemption to apply. This is because other activities can happen in isolation from other groups.
For further information relating to WWCC contact us at [email protected]
Any adult members of the Club that do not require a WWCC are instead required to complete a SLSNSW Membership Protection Declaration Form (only once for the entire length of your membership with our Club). If you are unsure whether you have ever completed this declaration, please email the Club to check.
Member renewals or transfers
Check your contact details are correct and renew membership online using the Surf Life Saving Australia Members Portal. If this is your first renewal you’ll need to create a SLS NSW members account.
Please note: Broulee Surfers SLSC requires that at least one parent or guardian join as an “Associate” member with all Nipper members.
