National Police Check/ NDIS Check
Disability care is a sensitive occupation that has the responsibility of caring for and supporting the health and wellbeing of people within our community. People employed in such positions of caring are required to have a current Police check and NDIS check.
The Australian Government by enabling the Police Check requirements ensures that the health, safety, and rights of the vulnerable persons in the community are not infringed upon. Police Checks aim to strengthen the meticulous employment process for the vulnerable in Australia.
h&h trainers and staff will assist you in completing and obtaining your police check/NDIS check.
