Here at Safe Ministry Check we want to give you more time with people, so we take care of the hassle of compliance for you. Keeping up with all that your insurance company requires can be tricky; that’s why we’ve developed an automated system that checks your volunteers for you.
Here are the checks that our system can run on your volunteers:
Working with Children Check (WA WWCC, Qld Bluecard, NSW WWCC, ACT WWCC, VIC WWCC, TAS WWCC, other)
The first and most important check is the Working with Children Check, and our system checks this for each state according to their requirements. As you put your trainees in the system, it checks for the following:
- Have they provided a WWCC number?
- Are they about to be old enough (in their state) to need a WWCC?
- Is the status cleared?
- Is it still pending?
- Have they provided a WWCC expiry date?
- Is it expired?
- Is it about to expire?
- Has the State paperwork been approved?
- Do they require a photo of their Card?
- Has their photo card been approved?
- Is their photo card approval pending?
While our integrated Police Checks are still in the development pipeline (keep your eyes peeled!), you can still record Police Check outcomes in your account. Here’s how you can do that: https://safeministrycheck.com.au/quick-tip-updating-police-check-information/
Our system then checks trainees for:
- Do they need to complete a current Police Check?
- Is the current Police Check cleared?
- Is the current Police Check about to expire?
- Has the current Police Check expired?
It is recommended that all volunteers have two referees who can verify their character. Our system automates this process for you, sending an online referee request to the nominated referees and records their responses. It then checks:
- Are the referee responses all cleared?
- Have their referee’s failed to give a response?
- Has one of their referees raised a concern?
Ansvar Risk recommends asking volunteers to make a personal disclosure about any previous instance where they have engaged in inappropriate behaviour towards children or vulnerable adults. They also recommend having volunteers sign a Code of Conduct. Our system automates this for you, and checks:
- Have they provided a self-disclosure response?
- Does their self-disclosure response need approval?
- Have they completed the Code of Conduct?
- Have they completed their required level of Safe Ministry Training?
- Has their course status expired?
- Is their course status about to expire?
- Is there some issue with syncing this person with your Church management system?
So let us take care of the hassle of compliance for you, so you can spend more time with people.
