Working With Vulnerable People
In the ACT under the Working with Vulnerable People (Background Checking) Act 2011, all individuals working with vulnerable people must have a current Working with Vulnerable People Card (WWVP).
Community Options registered providers must have a Working With Vulnerable People Registration and all employees must have current WWVP cards.
The aim of having a WWVP is to reduce the risk of harm or neglect to vulnerable people in the ACT.
