Once an organisation has started an online application on your behalf, the Screening Unit will send you an email so you can complete it.
If you don’t receive an email, contact the organisation to check they’ve started your application before you contact the Screening Unit.
To complete the application, you'll need to confirm your identity.
From 1 July 2019, individuals who need working with children checks can do their own applications from start to finish - you don't have to wait for an organisation to start it for you.
Sole-traders, contractors and self-employed people are considered businesses and need to register as an organisation before starting an application.
