Working with Children Checks are free for applicants who apply for a volunteer check in every State and Territory.

Unlike a Criminal History Check, a Working with Children Check (WWCC) must be arranged by the individual and then notified to StartOut by you.  Once you have your card or check details confirmed, please send a copy to us at
