Screening checks

Screening checks contribute to creating safe environments for children and other vulnerable people. South Australian and Commonwealth policy and legislation mean many employees and volunteers must have checks done as part of their roles.

The Screening Unit does 5 types of checks.

The checks are used to assess the risk of a person working with vulnerable people. The Screening Unit does not decide if a person is suitable for employment or volunteer work. It’s up to the organisation to decide if someone is right for a role.

The Screening Unit does not conduct National Police Checks.

You can apply for multiple checks in the same application.

Before you apply, ensure you don't already have an appropriate check.
