Working with Children’s Checks are mandatory for Adult Riding Members, Club Officials, Instructors, and Adult Supporting Members (Parents/Guardians/Carers).  In addition, the Club is required to register all Parents, Guardians and Carers with the State Association as Adult Supporting Members if they attend more than 3 rallies per year.
The new WWCC requirements do not affect events with spectators, casual visitors or individuals who are not consistently and significantly associated with a Club.  Neither do they apply to Associate Riding Members.

Categories of members requiring a Working With Children Check

Categories of members regularly attending rallies and club functions over a twelve month period requiring a WWCC are as follows:
  • An adult riding club member.
  • An honorary life member who regularly attends rallies and club activities.
  • An adult supporter which category shall be deemed to include the following:
  • Both parents of riders who regularly attending rallies.
  • A single parent who regularly attends rallies.
  • A non-parent guardian of a child either temporary or otherwise who regularly attends rallies.
  • Visiting members and adult supporting members as defined above from clubs  other than the host club.
  • A non-member who does not fall within the categories listed above who regularly attends rallies and club activities.

Definition of "regular"

For the purpose of definition in this sub clause “regular’ and ‘regularly” shall be deemed to mean three or more times over a twelve month period. A “single parent” shall be deemed to be a person who is listed on the membership form of a member club as the primary carer.

Who is not affected by the changes?

Requirements do not affect the following individuals:
  • Competition Spectators, competitions which are open to the public with entries open to any eligible rider. An eligible rider may or may not be a Pony Club Member.
  • “Come and Try for the day” at the rally because they are not yet members of the club and their membership will be conditional upon obtaining a WWWC.Apply for your Working With Children Check Online
  • A parent or a guardian or a grandparent or a friend of the rider, who is not a member of the club and who is not registered as a member on the club’s membership list from coming to a rally.  They may have to bring the rider and be the carer on the day due to changed circumstances or attend as a spectator.
  • If a non-member starts to attend the rally on a regular basis then they must register with the club and obtain a WWCC.
