Are you due to renew?
28 September 2020
In March 2020, the Office of the Children’s Guardian announced an extension for Working With Children Check clearances that were soon to expire, pushing back the expiry date by six months.
The announcement was part of a suite of changes passed in NSW Parliament in response to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
These extended dates are now beginning to fall due.
If you have received an email notification that your clearance is due to expire, and you are still in child-related work (paid or unpaid), please renew as soon as you can.
If you are not sure when your clearance expires, you can find your expiry date online, or by using the Service NSW mobile app.
