**Continuing monitoring and alerting service for compliance checks of care and support workers occurs on the following basis:

C. Where Care Workers have indicated that they work with children (under the age of 18) and have provided the details of their Working With Children registration details (Working with the Vulnerable in some jurisdictions) - Carer Mate will screen and record the results weekly utilising the relevant jurisdiction’s service. The result of this weekly check is updated on the relevant care or support workers’ record in the blockchain.
D. All checks and records are accessible on the Carer Mate web application by the care or support worker who owns this information if they have a registered Care Worker account.
E. Checks and records are accessible by others (for example employers, guardians or parents) who have registered under the Business or Guardian Plan AND ONLY where the Care or Support Worker grants access within the Carer Mate web application to enable the registered third party to view.
