I'm an applicant
Before you do anything further, use the information on the Working With Children Check page to see if you require a Check.
You must keep your contact details up to date, then we can notify you when it is time to renew before the five year expiry date.
You need to be in NSW to complete an application except if you are an authorised carer or their household member.
The Check involves a national criminal history check and a review of findings of workplace misconduct.
Use the information in this section if you need help with your application or have questions about the process.
If you are from an Aboriginal/CALD community and would like to understand or know more about the Working With Children Check application process, you can contact 02 8219 3777 for assistance.
