Carer Mate Co-Founder Aaron McMurray explains that Carer Mate was conceived from his own frustrating experience of trying to vet and screen support workers for his son. He found a major gap in the current screening system.
Mr McMurray found that Working with Children Checks (WWCC) in Australia has a 5-year validity and on application, the National Criminal History database is checked (by the relevant State based WWCC authority). Thereafter the initial check, only the State based databases are checked. So, you can have a 5-year period where offences can occur interstate – and even have a finding of guilt in court and the WWCC in the State of issue will not be flagged.
Carer Mate supplements the WWCC system in each State with a recurring National Police check at the client’s selected intervals to fill the gap. This prevents what is known as forum shopping – with those who know how to exploit the system – have done so, as noted in the 2015 Royal Commission* report.
Mr McMurray believes there is no, and not likely to be (due to Australia being a Commonwealth of independent state authorities) a national database that is a single window in real time. When National Police checks are conducted, Mr McMurray says it is an aggregation of the individual queries and checks of the State’s databases.
Carer Mate is accredited by the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) to help organisations, guardians and workers to apply for and submit a national police check. Carer Mate is entrusted with direct access to the National Police Checking Service and plays a vital role to help safeguard the Australian community.
