Working With Children Check Procedures
Our volunteers require a Working with Children Check. Application forms can be obtained from participating Australia Post outlets.
Steps to completing a form:
1. Fill out the enclosed Working with Children Check as per the attached information in the form itself.
2. For section D, refer to the back page of the form. Please note that codes specific to volunteering with Down Syndrome Victoria are:
(10), (74) and any others that may be relevant to you, eg (34) for photography services
3. For section E, enter Down Syndrome Victoria’s details:
||Down Syndrome Victoria
|| 219 Napier Street Fitzroy Victoria 3065
|| 03 9486 9600
4. Do not sign the form, or attach your photo, as you will need to do so when you lodge your application at an Australian Post Office.
If you require a Working with Children Check for employment purposes as well as volunteering, please note that you will have to fund the check yourself. The check can then be used for both your employment needs and volunteering with Down Syndrome Victoria.
