The WWC Screening Unit have launched a social media campaign asking parents and guardians engaging individuals to work with or look after their children a simple question - Have you Checked?

The awareness campaign highlights the importance of any self-employed individual offering child-related work, such as a nanny, babysitter, tutor, driving instructor or sports coach, to have a current Working with Children (WWC) Check.

Have you Checked? reminds parents and guardians to always ask to see the WWC Card of an individual providing a service to their child and validate the details of the Card on the WWC website.
