How do I apply for an NDIS Worker Screening Check?

The process of applying for your NDIS Worker Screening Check is different according to the state in which you are located

An NDIS Worker Screening Check (NDISWC) is obtained by applying through your state's designated Worker Screening Unit. All of the information we can provide to you for the check, as well as the associated links and costs are all included below:

Information for your application

As you go through the process of applying for the NDISWC, you will be required to provide details of your "Employer". For the purpose of this check, Like Family can be listed as your employer, meaning your application can be attached to our organisation. It is important to remember  though, that you are an independent contractor, and any other documents or checks you may need to obtain (such as a Working with Children's Check, Blue Card or Australian Business Number) will not be attached to Like Family directly.

In order to find Like Family in the NDISWC database, you will need the following information:

  • Our NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission number is 4-3LLK-349
  • Our name is Home Care Heroes Pty Ltd trading as Like Family
  • For the address section: Please enter your own home address as you are an independent contractor.
