Working With Children Check Renewal Date Has Been Extended Due to COVID-19

Dear WWCC Clearance Holders,

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Children’s Guardian has made changes to the Working With Children Check to reduce the movement of people in the community while still supporting continuity of services to children.

The Child Protection (Working with Children) Act 2012 was amended 25 March to enable the Children’s Guardian to extend WWCC clearances where appropriate to help prevent any disruption to services as a result of COVID-19.

Accordingly, your WWCC clearance has been automatically extended for a further 6 months. The 6 months applies from the date of your current expiry date.

For example, if your current expiry date is 26 March 2020, your new expiry date is 26 September 2020. You will receive an email 3 months prior to your new expiry date reminding you to renew. You can also find your WWCC clearance number and new expiry date by entering your details here

Your WWCC information can also be accessed securely in the Service NSW mobile app at anytime and anywhere. We encourage you to download the SNSW mobile app and link your WWCC clearance number with other details such as car registrations and your digital driver license

Your WWCC clearance will still be continuously monitored for criminal and workplace records and the Office of the Children’s Guardian will advise your employer should you become barred from working with children through the continuous monitoring process.

If you have been asked to provide further information about your WWCC clearance, please ensure that you respond to that request. If you require additional information or support please email [email protected].

What do you need to do?

·       You should advise your employer of your changed expiry date.

·       Please keep you contact details up to date. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be relying on digital correspondence. If you have not provided us with an email address, please nominate one by updating your contact information at

If you have any questions about these measures, please contact our Customer Service Team via [email protected]

Kind regards
