This report contains the findings from our follow-up of my Office’s 2014 Working with Children Checks performance audit.
Keeping children safe is a priority. The core principle of the Working with Children (Criminal Record Checking) Act 2004 is that the best interests of children are the paramount consideration. The Working with Children Check is one of a range of strategies to help make organisations child-safe and reduce the risk to children. The number of Working with Children Check cardholders in the State continues to grow.
