Barnies Club Policies

Working With Childrens Check

The Working with Children (WWC) Check helps protect children from physical and sexual harm. It does this by screening people’s criminal records and professional conduct and preventing those who pose an unjustifiable risk to children from working with or caring for them.


The WWC Check does not assess a person’s suitability to work with or care for children in a particular role. It is the responsibility of the Club to assess if a volunteer is suitable to work with children and continue monitoring their behaviour around children.


Accordingly, we will be vigilant at all times by doing thorough checks and establishing sound, ongoing supervision practices so that children are safe from harm
