Allevia, as a Registered NDIS provider, must ensure that particular workers have an appropriate check as a mandatory requirement of NDIS provider registration. This guarantees that key personnel and workers in roles delivering specified NDIS supports or specified NDIS services, or with more than incidental contact with people with disability, do not pose an unacceptable risk to the safety and well-being of NDIS participants.

Allevia screens all employees, volunteers, contractors and consultants.

Screening includes:

  • A Working with Children Check
  • A National Police Check

All screening must be completed before an employee can commence work and come into contact with any child, young person and person with a disability.

Everyone must keep these checks current and this means having to get them re-done on a regular basis.

There may be other checks that will be done as the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission works toward greater levels of screening across the sector.
