If you work in more than one service you may need to apply for registration on more than one part of the SSSC Register.
This is because your registration is based on your role and how that service is registered with the Care Inspectorate.
Check how your service is registered
Your manager should know how the service is registered with the Care Inspectorate but you can check on the Care Inspectorate’s website.
All you need is the service name or postcode.
In the example below, you can see that ABC Supported Living is registered with the Care Inspectorate as a housing support service and a support service. If the support service is care at home and you work in both services you should apply for combined registration using your MySSSC account. If you only work in one of the services, you only need to apply for that part.
I work in two services, what should I do?
When you apply for registration through MySSSC, there are five main applications that allow you to apply for two parts of the Register at the same time.
For example: I work as a support worker and the service I work in is registered as a housing support service and a care at home service with the Care Inspectorate. I can be asked to work in either service as part of my role.
You should select Combined Register Part 5 when applying for registration.
If you have already started an application and you now realise that you need to apply on two parts of the Register, please delete your application and start again selecting Combined Register Part 5 for support workers in care at home and housing support services.
What happens if my application isn’t correct?
If we receive an application that isn’t correct, it could take longer for us to complete your application as we will need to gather more information from you and your employer.
This could mean you may not gain registration in time, or for the correct parts of the Register, which could affect your ability to work.
