Volunteering: cyclones, fire and disasters
Volunteering is about helping others in your community, especially in times of need - such as during cyclones, fires and severe storms.
To work in some volunteer roles, you will have to get a criminal history check. For some you will need a working with children clearance notice, also called an Ochre Card.
Criminal history check
You can apply online for a criminal history check. You can apply in person at any Territory Business Centre or police station.
As a volunteer, the fee for this check is $5.
Your National Police Certificate will be sent to the volunteer organisation for their assessment. You will also be sent a copy.
For further information you should talk to your volunteer organisation or contact SAFE NT at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1800 723 368.
Working with children clearance
You can apply online for a working with children clearance, or in person and by mail. You can also apply in person at any Territory Business Centre.
