South Australian Cricket Association would like to provide an update on the new legislation about to come into effect (1 July 2019) in relation to Working with Children Checks (WWCC). There are new screening laws for people volunteering with children in SA, following are some key points to assist in preparing for the 2019/20 season that clubs or volunteers will need to do in relation to the changes to legislation:
Checks are free for volunteers, so if a club or a volunteer is in doubt, they should apply for a check.
The SACA field force staff have previously contacted clubs regarding obtaining the details for the relevant volunteers within your club. However, if you have had changes from the 2018/19 season please contact your relevant field force staff member or Sankha de Livera (email@example.com).
For more information relating to the WWCC please visit - screening.sa.gov.au/wwcc
If you have any questions relating to this process, please contact David Penn (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss.
