Public Facing Register

You can use this public register to check whether a social care worker’s registration is valid and appropriate for their job or if it has been granted with any conditions. The absence of a record does not necessarily mean that the worker is not registered. 

You can search by name, town where the social care worker is currently employed, or by social care registration number. The most effective way of searching is by the registration number, if this is unknown you should search by surname initially and then refine by first name if required.

You can only search the register for Northern Ireland on this website - use one of the following links to search EnglandScotland or Wales
