The Working with Children Check lasts for five years, so renewals have commenced from March 2018 for those who first applied in 2013.
    If your contact details are up to date, you will receive a notification from the Office of the Children’s Guardian when it is time for you to renew your WWC number.
    A WWCC number is like a driver licence – the number stays with you and is renewed before it expires. Do not reapply – you simply renew, and your WWC number will remain valid for another 5 years.
    Renewal applications cannot be submitted more than three months before your expiry date.
    Call Office of the Children’s Guardian customer service team on 02 9286 7219 if you require any further assistance.
