Campaign overview: Be on the right side of the law campaign 2021

The WWC Screening Unit is committed to improving the protection of children in Western Australia. Our proactive compliance program identifies and targets specific areas of risk, with the current focus on self-employed individuals who advertise tuition services online. 

Our ‘Be on the right side of the law’ campaign aims to:

  • Promote the WWC Check as a regulatory requirement to self-employed individuals who advertise tuition services
  • Ensure that individuals who advertise these services hold a current WWC Check
  • Encourage parents to protect their child’s safety by ensuring the service has the rights checks

It’s important for individuals and organisations to be familiar with their WWC Check responsibilities as some offences carry penalties of up to $60,000 and possible imprisonment.

Our current banner adverts ensure that individuals advertising tuition or coaching services are aware that they must hold a current WWC Check if they engage in child-related work.
