Registration to Work with Vulnerable People and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Worker Screening

The NDIS Commission is working with state and territory Governments to make sure there is nationally consistent worker screening for people who want to work or are currently working with people with disability in the NDIS.

In Tasmania we refer to Worker Screening as a Registration to Work With Vulnerable People (RWVP)

NDIS Worker Screening aims to reduce the risk of harm to people with disability. A screened worker will be able to deliver services and supports:

  • in any Australian state or territory, or
  • to any employer delivering services and supports under the NDIS.

NDIS transitional arrangements in Tasmania

Each state and territory has developed their own transitional arrangements and registration requirements.

I have a current Working With Vulnerable People Card. What do I do?

The NDIS will recognise your current Working With Vulnerable People (Child Related Activity) registration until it expires.

Anyone who does not have a current registration

From 1 July 2019 NDIS providers and their employees, who do not have a current registration to work with vulnerable people in child-related activities, must apply online.

Legislation

The Registration to Work With Vulnerable People Act 2013 is being amended to allow for NDIS registration.
