Working with Children Check - South Australia

South Australia has introduced stronger, transparent and more effective screening laws for people working or volunteering with children. 

The new laws mean that, from 1 July 2019, everyone working or volunteering with children must have a valid clearance, such as a new working with children check (WWCC)

You can complete your screening and background check here

Once approved, please provide your reference number to Special Olympics by emailing Gareth Hogan: garethh@specialolympics.com.au
