The first is to notify you that a WWCC has been initiated, and asking you to activate your account.

The second contains your log in details, asks you to log in to your account and complete the application.

When prompted, select a mode to verify your identification. The choices are :

a) Verify online (Recommended for people with Australian ID)

Email to make a time to have the originals or certified copies of your 100 points of ID verified by the BRUFC permitted verifier(s)

-Kath Devlin-Matthews (Secretary & Child Safety Officer) & -Paula Davies (Member Protection & Information Officer).

c) Print & Send – Print your completed application form, and post it along with with certified copies of 100 points of ID, to the DHS Screening Unit.
