Royal Commission – WWCC and preventing sexual abuse of kids on OOHC

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse have released a statement responding to public submissions on Working With Children Checks.

Chief Executive Officer, Janette Dines, said the Royal Commission was pleased with the response.

Views expressed include:

  • the need for national consistency in the operation of the Working With Children Check
  • the need for more research to determine what elements of existing schemes are most effective; and
  • the need to consider the Working with Children Check as only one element in a broader framework for protecting children.

The Royal Commission's fourth issues paper will be released next week, looking at preventing the sexual abuse of children in out-of-home care.

The full statement is available here.
