Participants who join the department's holiday
camps are required to demonstrate behaviours that support the growth of
the individual and the achievement of team outcomes.
To assist in achieving these objectives we ask that the following be observed:
The department complies with Working with
Children (Criminal Record Checking) Act 2004 to ensure a safe
environment for children.
The Working with Children (WWC) Check is
a comprehensive criminal record check undertaken for specified people
working with children in Western Australia. The department recognises
the importance of the WWC Check as being one element of child
protection. The WWC Check aims to increase the safety of children in the
community by ensuring people who have a criminal history that indicates
they may harm children do not actually work with children.
The department ensures all relevant employees and volunteers are
compliant with Working with Children legislation requiring that:
The department do not provide information about individual staff
member's Working with Children status to external organisations, nor do
they expect their staff to carry their Working with Children cards at
all times. Instead the department includes in its contracts with
external organisations the assurance that all employees have sufficient
qualifications and the requisite police clearances and Working with
Subcontractors to the department who are involved in child-related
activities are also required to ensure that their employees possess and
maintain valid Working with Children Check in compliance with the
working with children legislation.
Legal responsibility for the protection of children from abuse rests with both the Department of Communities and the WA Police.
