We work directly with high-school students. Therefore all volunteers with Embrace are required to complete a Working With Children (WWC) check.
When to apply?
Please apply for your Working With Children check now, regardless of the stage you are currently at with your application. We recommend this as the WWC can take up to two months to return, yet applications are free, last for 5 years and can be used for other purposes even if you do not pass your Embrace interview and other requirements.
Working With Children Check:
