Someone very talented at Parks Victoria has kindly put together a one page infographic on how to apply for a Working with Children Check. It's in the detailed section, below.
So, you have until June 30 to get one in order to be able to continue to work on PV projects as a volunteer. Hop to it. And make sure you register the WWCC document number on Park Connect!
The Victorian government is consulting on proposals to renew Victoria’s public land legislation, including the creation of a new Public Land Act.
Much of Victoria’s current public land legislation is outdated and does not reflect contemporary views and values of public land. It is also complex and does not adequately support efficient and effective public land management. A new Public Land Act will assist in overcoming the barriers and issues posed by the current legislative framework.
From the CEO
I’m pleased to provide Landcare Victoria’s November newsletter.
The Government plan to allow camping on licensed water frontages has been a significant point of concern for many in the Landcare community in the last few weeks. We reported on the issue in the October newsletter and provide an update in this issue.
The Landcare community is expressing widespread concern about the imminent end of the current round of funding for the Landcare Facilitator Program. Landcare Victoria is in regular contact with DELWP about the issue. See the report in this newsletter.
The very good news about the decline in the number of Victorian COVID19 cases and associated easing of restrictions means that volunteer group activities can re-commence with appropriate care.
