Service Listing > Children's Services & Care > Carers Register
The Carers Register has been designed to promote the safety, welfare and well-being of children and young people in statutory and supported out-of-home care by supporting the appropriate authorisation of carers.
The Carers Register is a restricted database that enables designated agencies to record and access information about applicants for authorisation as a carer, authorised carers, and persons who reside with an authorised carer.
The Carers Register requires designated agencies to certify that required checks and assessments of carers and household members have been conducted. The Carers Register also contains information about carer applicant, carer and household member histories that supports designated agencies sharing information about those persons.
