Research at the WCHN

Working With Children Checks

(formerly DCSI Child-Related Employment Screening)

All non-WCHN personnel and students involved in a research project or audit at WCHN and who will visit a WCHN site or access identifiable information of WCHN participants who are children must provide the WCHN Research Governance Officer with evidence of a current SA Department of Human Services Child-Related Employment Screening clearance as well as a WCHN HREC Confidentiality Agreement in order to be authorised to work on the study.

Compliance with these requirements is required by South Australian legislation and WCHN policy. Failure to adhere to these requirements will result in such personnel not receiving authorisation to work on the study.

WWCC applications

Applications for a WWCC can be made directly at the Department of Human Services website.

Please note that National Police Certificates or WWCC from other jurisdictions will not generally be accepted as they are not the equivalent of South Australian DCSI Child-Related Employment Screening. Here is a link to the requirements for non-WCHN personnel who have an interstate clearance.
