Police Check

Police checks offer a simple and non-intrusive pathway to verify your identity and reduce risk for your future clients.

Find a Carer is committed to a high safety standard, to protect vulnerable people who will be purchasing your services through our marketplace. All care and support workers listed on our site must complete a National Police Check process. A National Police Check has a validity period of 3 years, so if you completed a Police check in the last 3 years, simply attach your certificate to your profile record. For more information about National Police Checks click here (

Please note that the application process does attract a fee. This fee is different in each state and is clearly identified on the links below. It is also your responsibility to renew your National Police Check every 3 years and update your profile with the new certificate. It is also your responsibility to notify us immediately on if you are charged or convicted of any criminal offence.
