A WWC number is like a driver licence – the number stays with you and is renewed before it expires. Do not reapply – you simply renew, and your WWC number will remain valid for another five years. Renewal applications cannot be submitted until three months before your expiry date but please try to do them as soon as you receive this renewal due notice. Then please let Jenny Hurst or Annie in the office know when you receive confirmation of the renewal so that we can update our records. Thanks to all those that have already given Annie notification of these renewals.
