WORKING WITH CHILDREN CHECK
The WWC Check is a NSW Government requirement that applies to people who work or volunteer directly with children (u18).
It checks the background of persons who work or volunteer with children in sport clubs, schools, child care centres, community groups, churches and other organisations.
Kissing Point Football Club (KPFC) values its members and volunteers very highly, and considers its duty of care of utmost importance. KPFC has adopted the NSW Government regulations as a minimum requirement for the safety of all involved. The process is FREE for all volunteers, and the KPFC Committee has decided that all the following personnel for all KPFC Teams (with the exception of Over35 and Over45) must complete the WWCC process and provide verification details to the Club.
- Coaches (and assistants)
- Managers (and assistants)
- Grading personnel
The following volunteers are exempt from the WWCC process:
- Persons under 18 years of age
- Canteen volunteers
- Grounds volunteers

How to apply for a Working with Children Check and obtain a WWC Number
If you are volunteering or working with children (u18), you will be asked to provide a WWC Number to your Club. For KPFC, the Member Protection Officer (MPO) has been designated the task of collecting and recording the results of all our volunteer checks.
If you already have a WWC Number, you must provide it to the Club. If you do not have a WWC Number, you will need to apply on-line for a WWC Check to obtain your WWC Number.
To apply for your WWC Check, visit the WWC website (linked below) and follow the instructions.
The on-line step takes approx 3-5 minutes. Please tick “Volunteer” otherwise you will be charged $80. For sector – choose Clubs.
An application number will be generated. Print this sheet and take it to the nearest NSW Service Registry with proof of identity. This step may take a while, depending on the queue. The WWC Check is FREE for volunteers.
After you have attended the Service Registry and been cleared, you should receive your WWC Number by email within four weeks (although some applications are taking less than a week). The WWC Number clears you to work and volunteer directly with children. Once your individual WWC Number arrives, please forward ASAP to the KPFC MPO for recording purposes, along with your DOB and role within the Club. The Club then verifies the WWC Number on-line and keeps a record. That is the end of the process. A WWC Number is valid for 5 years.
Keep your Number handy, because it applies to all sporting and community groups that you volunteer with.
