Who can I use as a reference?

All care workers are required to submit two references as part of the application process.

If you are offering personal care or nursing services, you will need two professional references. Professional references include supervisors, senior colleagues, trainers, and clients.

If you are only offering social support and domestic assistance, you will need two personal references. Personal references include colleagues at the same level or other qualified people who know you.

Family members or partners / spouses cannot be accepted as references under any circumstances.

If you are unsure who you can use as a reference, please call us on 1300 73 65 73.
