How do I apply for a NDIS Workers Check?

An NDIS Workers Check is an essential requirement to work as a Social Carer at Like Family.

The NDIS Worker Screening Check is an assessment of whether a person who works, or seeks to work, with people with disability poses a risk to them. The assessment determines whether a person is cleared or excluded from working in certain roles with people with disability.

At Like Family, we require all of our Social Carers to get a NDIS Workers Check to ensure the safety of our Members. These checks are valid for 5 years and are valid for work across all states, and all NDIS registered providers.
