Working with Vulnerable People (WWVP)

In 2011 the ACT Office of Regulatory Services (ORS) introduced a centralised background checking system for people that are engaged in regulated activities with vulnerable people.  The Working with Vulnerable People (WWVP) registration aims to reduce the risk of harm or neglect to vulnerable people in the ACT.

The University is implementing changes to existing HR processes so that we are compliant with this Act and CASS HR is now implementing these for our staff as needed. Read more
