The National Disability Insurance Scheme Worker Screening Check (NDIS Check) has started. The NDIS Check is a way to ensure that people who work with NDIS participants do not present an unacceptable risk to participants. All states and territories have implemented NDIS Worker Screening Check arrangements.  If you are a worker delivering NDIS supports and services for our organisation you are required to have an NDIS worker screening clearance.


Victoria is taking a ‘no clearance, no start’ approach to the NDIS Check. This means that a person is prohibited from being employed or otherwise engaged by a registered NDIS provider in a risk assessed role unless the person has an NDIS Clearance. We, as your employer and a registered NDIS provider, must make sure all staff who need an NDIS Clearance have one.

To meet legislative requirements, our staff are required to possess both an NDIS Clearance and a WWC Clearance as they are engaged in child related work as part of their NDIS role. As such, you may have your WWC fee waived, further information can be found at here.

The fee for an NDIS Check is $128.20. An NDIS Clearance is valid for 5 years from the date of the notice unless it is surrendered or revoked.

What is worker screening?


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 will determine whether a person is cleared or excluded from working in certain roles with people with disability.
