Working With Vulnerable People Requirements

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.

 

Applying for the Working with Vulnerable People Card

To register for a WWVP card, an application fee of $73.00 applies.

If you do NOT have a WWVP card, you can apply online for the card by going to the ACT Government website here.
