It is essential that all Maccabi representatives, inlcuding all club committee members,coaches and all Board members, at the State and National level , all the MIO’s and Tribunal members, MPP sub committee’s, any paid personnel and any paid volunteers assisting at any Maccabi event must have a current Working with Children Check before commencing workwith children or young people.
The Working with Children Check (WWC Check) is a compulsory screening strategy in Western Australia and the Christmas and Cocos (Keeling) Islands.
The WWC Check aims to protect children by:
deterring people from applying to work with children where they have a relevant charge or conviction on their criminal record that indicates they may harm a child;
detecting new charges and convictions of those people who hold a current WWC Card and preventing them from continuing to engage in child-related work where their criminal record and behaviour indicates they may harm a child; and
protecting children by creating awareness that safeguarding children is a whole of community responsibility.
