If you didn’t get the results you were expecting, or you are unsure that you have searched properly, the following information may help you:

  • Search using a first name, surname, county of employment or Social Care Wales registration number (SCR number) if you know it. The number should look like this W/1234567
  • You do not need to enter information in all sections to search
  • Individuals are registered by the name they are known as at work. E.g., if someone called Angela is normally known as ‘Angie’, try using both names to search for the person
  • When entering a person’s first or second name in the search box, do not add a space after the name
  • A search may show more than one result e.g. a search for ‘Robert’ will show ‘Robert’, ‘Roberts’ and ‘Robertson’ as these names all include the word ‘Robert’.

If a person you search for does not appear on the Register, this may mean they are not currently registered with Social Care Wales. You should also check the individuals that have been removed from Register list.


If a person’s name appears on the Register but it says they are suspended, this means they are not currently permitted to work in the social care sector in Wales. The Register will show the period of the suspension.


If a person’s name appears in the individuals that have been removed from Register list, this means they have been removed from the Register as a result of concerns about their fitness to practise and cannot carry on working in their registered role.
