People working or volunteering with children in South Australia must, by law, have a Working with Children Check.
A Working with Children Check is an assessment of whether a person poses an unacceptable risk to children. As part of the process, the Screening Unit will look at criminal history, child protection information and other information.
There are transitional arrangements in place for other checks. See this list to learn what you need to do.
Only the Department of Human Services Screening Unit can conduct a Working with Children Check.
