Child protection is about keeping children safe from abuse and protecting them from any form of harm. NSWS wants to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children and minors (under the age of 18) who are in their care at all times.

In NSW, Working with Children Check (WWCC) laws aim to prevent people who pose a threat from working with children as paid employees or volunteers.
A Working with Children Check is a prerequisite for anyone in child-related work. It involves a national criminal history check and review of the findings of workplace misconduct. The result of a Working with Children Check is either a clearance to work with children for five years, or a bar against working with children. Cleared applicants are subject to ongoing monitoring, and any relevant new records which appear against a cleared applicant's name may lead to the clearance being revoked.
NSW Snowsports is required to undertake Working with Children Checks as we provide certain kinds of child-related employment/activities.
