NDIS Screening

Understanding The NDIS Screening Check

The NDIS Screening Check is a committed background screening product designed to assess an individual’s suitability to work with people with disabilities. Registered NDIS care providers must ensure that workers engaged in risk-assessed roles have been cleared under the new NDIS worker screening check.

The NDIS screening check is a new national check that estimates if a person who works with people with a particular disorder poses any difficulties in living. It is now live over all states and territories in Australia.

Understanding the NDIS Screening Check

Since there has previously been a range of methods used to screen care workers over the years, many people may wonder why a new system is necessary. The reason is that the old system was fragmented and didn’t work well, resulting in people with disability experiencing poor care and even abuse from workers who had been screened. The NDIS has committed to creating a new screening process for those working with participants.

The previous system allowed screening to be done by agencies, government bodies and even employers. As a result, only government bodies had full details and could identify potential risks for employers.

The worker screening unit conducts the NDIS worker screening check in the state where a person applies for it. It also chooses whether a person is cleared or excluded. Registered NDIS service providers must ensure they only engage workers allocated in specific roles, called risk-assessed functions.

Who needs to get an NDIS Check?

Anyone who works with or seeks to work with people living with a disability needs to go through the NDIS Check. According to the NDIS, this process decides whether a person is cleared or kept from working in specific roles with people with disability.

Australian workers with NDIS Check clearance can easily switch roles, departments, organizations, and even states without needing another approval for five years.

How to apply for an NDIS screening check?

Here are the steps for a worker screening check.
Sign in or register to your service account

  • Verify your identity
  • Provide your identification documents for background check
  • Provide your work info
  • Review and offer consent for the checks
  • Pay for the application

You must have your NDIS screening check application supported by the provider who offers NDIS plan management. After application verification, the NDIS worker screening unit will check the application.

Then, the worker’s screening unit will send you an email confirming the receipt of your application, and they will explain the next steps. Ensure the email address you give during the application process is correct.

Why was the NDIS Worker Screening Check introduced?

Screening Check

The core reasoning behind introducing this screening process is to make sure that individuals who have the potential to be harmful are not working with people with disability. Before this process, not every clearance was equal.

This had a direct effect on the safety and well-being of NDIS recipients.
Many people with disability have experienced abuse and bad treatment by workers with the required clearance, and this screening process aims to stop that.
