NDIS Check

Why do I need a NDIS check for volunteering?

Volunteers are often working in a community service area or with vulnerable people.

It is important that organisations provide a safe workplace, and this is often a part of a screening process to ensure this.

Who pays for a NDIS check?

A NDIS check is free for volunteers.

You will need to provide the identity documents as follows:

You must provide the certified copies of at least four proof of identity (POI) documents including:

  • One commencement of identity document
  • One primary use in the community document
  • 2 secondary use in the community documents.

Your documents must meet the following conditions:

When combined, the documents must show:

  • Your full name
  • Your date of birth
  • A photo of you

All your documents must be current.

You can’t use 2 of the same type of identity document to make up the 4 documents (for example, you can’t use 2 different credit cards).

if you don’t have an identity document containing a photograph, you will need to submit a passport style photograph that has been certified stating that it is a photograph of you.

If the names on your identity documents and/or your form don't match, you will need to provide documents linking the different names. To link your names, you may provide:

  • A marriage certificate (issued by a State Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages)
  • A name change certificate (issued by a State Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages)
  • Divorce papers that link both names
  • A deed poll
