WWC Check Education Campaign

Nov 09, 2020
We are currently undertaking a proactive advertising and awareness campaign to increase the compliance of people in child-related work. Four one-minute infographic videos have been created to help inform people about their WWC Check responsibilities. They will run on social media and digital advertising platforms such as Facebook and Gumtree, where people often advertise services such as child-minding, tutoring, coaching and children’s party services.

We are currently undertaking a proactive advertising and awareness campaign to increase the compliance of people in child-related work.

Four one-minute infographic videos have been created to help inform people about their WWC Check responsibilities. They will run on social media and digital advertising platforms such as Facebook and Gumtree, where people often advertise services such as child-minding, tutoring, coaching and children’s party services.

The campaign continues recent work done to examine 230 advertisements placed in newspapers and on Gumtree and Facebook by self-employed people in child-related work. The audit resulted in the removal of 52 advertisements following contact from the Unit and a further 32 were referred to our compliance team for investigation.

This campaign serves as a reminder that it’s up to all of us to keep children’s safety in check.
