The Disability Worker Registration Board of Victoria and Victorian Disability Worker Commission held an online launch on Thursday 1 July 2021 to mark the introduction of Victoria’s disability worker registration.

The voluntary registration of disability workers is the first of its kind in Australia and provides rigorous standards for safety, skills and professionalism.

Registration is part of new safeguards developed in response to recommendations of the Victorian Parliament’s 2016 Inquiry into Abuse in Disability Services. Victoria is leading the way in the highest standards of support for people with disability.
