Whether a volunteer requires an integrity check depends on the Volunteer Role, the level of supervision and the possible risk/s.
TSA has not adopted a blanket approach to integrity checks in an effort to avoid unnecessary admin work and cost. All Volunteer Role Profiles state whether an integrity check is mandatory for that role. If your role is not listed use the Volunteer Integrity Check Matrix to work out whether an integrity check is required, and if applicable, what type of check is needed.
Types of integrity Checks include:
- Police check
- Working with children check
- Financial check
South Australia has adopted a more comprehensive approach - please speak to the divisional Volunteer Resources Coordinator, for guidance.
1. View the 'easy to follow process' for obtaining a Police Check (CrimCheck)
2. Working with Children Check (WWCC)
NOTE: Victorian Corps must read the new WWC requirements relating to all staff and volunteers.
3. If a Financial Check is required contact the Divisional Volunteer Resources Coordinator.
Risk Assessment of Disclosable on Integrity Checks are mandatory for volunteers with roles that are identified through the Volunteer Integrity Check Matrix, and as specified on volunteer role profiles. For any disclosable outcome on an integrity check, please contact your state Volunteer Resources Coordinator to have a risk assessment done.
