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.
