YOUR SAFETY, SUPPORT AND BACKUP:
Read important information about the Support & Backup you receive before you leave and during your programme.
Read about the Safety and Security measures we take to ensure your safety and wellbeing while on our programme.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BOOK YOUR PLACEMENT?
Once you have applied for a placement, we'll contact you and send you our Welcome
Pack. You'll also receive Log-on details and password for our Volunteer Extranet
where you'll have access to all the documentation and information which we've put
together to facilitate preparations for your adventure! Your Project Co-ordinator
for your country will liaise with you throughout the arrangements process, as well
as while you're on your placement and on your return home.
The documents you'll have access to also include a Country Factfile, Safety Guide
and any manuals that may assist you on your particular programme (e.g. Teaching
Guide, Sports Manuals, Enrichment Suggestions for Animal Care, etc.). We do all
we can to make your stay one that you'll never forget. This is a truly awesome,
elegant and beautiful country.
As with all our destinations, the culture and heritage is different to what you're
used to ... which, although one of the most exciting aspects of travelling, should
be borne in mind. Self-reliance and independence are highly appreciated in all
our destinations and will help you to make the most of this wonderful opportunity!
VOLUNTEERING WITH CHILDREN AND VULNERABLE ADULTS
As well as protecting all our volunteers, Travellers Worldwide is committed to all our projects and dedicated to practices which protect children and vulnerable adults from harm. Read Travellers' Child Care and Vulnerable Adults Policy.
REQUIREMENTS: WORKING WITH CHILDREN'S CHECKS &
As part of the law in Western Australia, it is compulsory for all volunteers who
work with children to undergo a Working With Children's Check (WCC). It is also
compulsory for volunteers who work in schools to undergo a police check. These checks
are done to ensure the safety of children in Western Australia.
The checks are a simple process and we will provide you with all the details
of what identity you need to take with you. On your arrival in Perth, our Australia
manager will complete the checks with you and take you through the process. As soon
as you have registered, you'll be allowed to start working with children.
I absolutely loved my project!
Annette was wonderful!! She really made me feel like I had a support system from
the second I met her at the airport.
