working with children in the act

Pursuant to the Working with Vulnerable People (Background Checking) Act 2011, if you are 16 years or older, are working or volunteering with Girl Guides in the ACT and this involves interaction with people under the age of 18, you are generally required to have a Working with Vulnerable People Card. These cards need to be carried with you whenever you are in contact with youth as part of your involvement with Girl Guides in the ACT.


For volunteers, the Working with Vulnerable People Card is free, however should you require it for both your paid employment and your volunteer role, a fee of $73 is applicable. For more information click here. You can also access the Working with Vulnerable People application form here
