Reporting Obligations and Processes – new resource now available

This handbook will help your organisation understand the importance of reporting and help you meet your reporting obligations.

Reporting Obligations and Processes resource cover

Having a culture of reporting is a key component of being a safe organisation for children and young people because it supports them to speak up about anything that concerns them with an understanding they will be listened to and believed.

Our latest handbook has 3 parts:

  • Understanding child safe reporting
  • Understanding your reporting obligations
  • Creating a child safe reporting policy.


In addition to helping organisations understand the importance of reporting and how to develop a Child Safe Reporting Policy, this resource provides information about reporting obligations for child-related organisations in NSW. This includes reporting to NSW Police, the Department of Communities and Justice, the Office of the Children’s Guardian and other bodies.

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.
