Do I have to do the NDIS Worker Check?

Since February 2021, the NDIS Clearance became mandatory for any individual working in a risk-assessed role including allied health assistants and allied health professionals. An NDIS Clearance is valid across Australia for 5 years (unless it is surrendered or revoked) and will be necessary for all workers in the allied health industry.

However, there are exceptions for transitional arrangements e.g. In Victoria, if you have a valid police check and Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme (DWES) check, you will have until 31 July 2021 to get an NDIS Worker Screening Clearance (NDIS Clearance).
