You will need an NDIS Worker Check to work for a registered NDIS provider. An NDIS Worker Check is an assessment of whether a person who works, or seeks to work, with people with disability poses a risk of harm to them. It will determine whether you are cleared or excluded from working in certain roles with people with disability.
An NDIS Worker Check is portable across roles and organisations and any states or territories. It is also subject to ongoing national monitoring. The following existing checks will be recognised for NDIS work until they expire:
- Department of Human Services Disability Services Employment Screening
- Department of Human Services Child-related Employment Screening
- Department of Human Services Working with Children Check issued before 1 February 2021.
You will then need to apply for an NDIS Worker Check.
