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. Please contact the NISCC Enquiries Team or call 028 9536 2600 if you do not find the worker you are looking for.


You may also need to check the Fitness to Practise and Hearings section which provides details on any Fitness to Practise hearings where a social care worker has been admonished, suspended or removed from the register.


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. Searches for surnames which contain more than one word may not be successful. For example: if searching for 'De Vere' does not produce a result, try searching for 'Vere' instead. Sometimes a social care worker's 'Town of Employment' may not match your search criteria and it may be more effective to search again without including this information.

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