Working with Children Checks

Working with Children Checks are free for applicants who apply for a volunteer check in every State and Territory.

Occupational Field Code: 40 (Counselling services)

If you already have a Victorian check, you need to notify the Department of Justice and Regulation that you are also volunteering with StartOut Australia.  You can do that at:
