For employees and volunteers

Making sure people in child-related work are suitable and supported.

Employees and volunteers working with children have a responsibility to keep them safe from harm and abuse. This might mean having a cleared Working with Children Check (WWCC), doing child safe training or meeting reporting obligations.


Child-safe organisations choose workers and volunteers who are safe to work with children.

Working with Children Check

Organisations may ask you to apply for a paid or volunteer WWCC or show your knowledge of the Child Safe Standards and other systems designed to keep children safe.

Report a concern

Child-related workers can also raise a concern if they believe an organisation is putting children and young people at risk.

You can now renew your WWCC by using digital proof of identity – no need to visit a Service NSW Centre.
How to renew using digital proof of identity (POI)

You will need:

  • A MyServiceNSW account with the WWCC service added
  • 3 current identity documents including a NSW driver licence or photo card
  • a device with a working front camera for face verification.

If you're renewing a paid WWCC, you will also need a credit card, debit card, PayPal or PayID account.

If you have an expired WWCC clearance or have changed your name on your identity documents since the last time you renewed your WWCC, you can't renew using digital proof of identity.
