Changes to working with vulnerable people reporting requirements

As part of the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet’s response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, the Department is working with all currently funding and future grant recipient to implement Working with Vulnerable People, including children (WWVP) reporting requirements.

The Department has provided guidance for grant recipients in its publication Changes to Working with Vulnerable People Reporting Requirements – Guidance for Grant Recipients

The publication states that grant recipients will need to provide evidence in the following forms:

  1. Evidence of a risk assessment to identify the level of contact with vulnerable people including children and the level of risk of harm or abuse, and implement appropriate strategies to manage those risks
  2. Evidence that grant recipients have training and compliance regimes in place regarding WWVP
  3. An annual Statement of Compliance confirming that the grant recipient complies with all relevant WWVP State or Territory legislation

Further information and guidance, including checklists and templates, are provided within the document to help grant recipients meet these requirements.

Any questions can be answered by contacting the Department.
