National screening system to protect NDIS participants

Published

The Liberal National Government today moved to establish a nationally consistent approach to screening people who work with people with disability in the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).

Minister for Families and Social Services, Paul Fletcher, said the National Disability Insurance Scheme Amendment (Worker Screening Database) Bill 2018, introduced into the Federal Parliament today, would establish a national database to support a nationally consistent approach to screening people who work with NDIS participants.

The new approach to NDIS Worker Screening is due to start in July 2019 in all States and Territories, except Western Australia. Western Australia intends to join the national scheme from July 2020.
