Please note that individuals are registered by the name they are known as at work e.g Leslie = Les, Angela = Angie. If you cannot find a registrant’s entry on the register please try to include as much information as possible in the search fields.
The most accurate and secure way of checking whether an individual is registered is by entering the registration number in the relevant field.
You can search a social care worker's record using first name, surname, county of employment or Care Council for Wales' registration number; you do not need to enter information in all sections.
The search facility provides automatic "wild card" searching e.g. Robert will give Robert, Roberts and Robertson.

Admonishment is a stern warning given to the registrant. The admonishment can be placed on the registrant’s entry in the Social Care Register for up to five years. The admonishment will remain on the Care Council’s records and may be taken into account in future proceedings. A registrant is able to continue working whilst the admonishment is in place.
Registered with conditions
A registrant may have had conditions placed on his/her registration by a Care Council for Wales Registration Committee, Investigating Committee, Conduct Committee or Health Committee.
The Register will not show whether a condition has been placed on a registrant’s registration. If you are an employer considering employing a registrant, and you wish to check whether a condition(s) has been imposed, please ask the applicant for a copy of their registration certificate – this will contain any condition(s) imposed on the applicant’s registration. If, following this, you require additional information about the conditions, please contact the Registrar on 029 2078 0656.
Everyone on the Register will have shown that they are suitable for work in social care by satisfying us:
- that they have the necessary qualifications;
- are physically and mentally fit;
- are of good character; and
- agree to comply with the Code of Practice for Social Care Workers.
