The requirement for workers of South Australian government-funded providers to have a disability services employment screening (disability screening) ceased on 31 January 2021.
From 1 February 2021, only workers who undertake NDIS work need a check.
We longer accept applications for disability screenings.
The South Australian government no longer funds disability services. Disability services are provided by the Commonwealth government under NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme).
NDIS workers must have a NDIS worker check. A SA-based check is no longer needed.
Applications started but not submitted by 31 January 2021 will be cancelled and refunded.
If you need a a check to undertake NDIS work, you can apply for an NDIS worker check.
Applications that were submitted before 1 February 2021 will still be processed.
A disability screening can be used for NDIS work until it expires or is revoked.
We will continue to monitor disability screenings. Employers can still verify that a screening is valid until 31 March 2024 via their employer portal.
If your role includes children with disability, you also need a Working with Children Check (from 1 July 2019).
