All children have the right to be safe and protected from harm. Blue Card Services administers the Blue Card system – Queensland’s working with children check. Working with children checks provide a check of a person’s criminal history and is also an ongoing assessment of your eligibility to work with children while you are on placement.

If your application is approved, you will be issued with a Positive Notice and a Blue Card which allows you to work with children while on placement for 3 years. If you are required to hold a valid Blue Card, it is against the law for you to commence or continue your placement without one. It is your responsibility to hold a valid Blue Card for the duration of your placement.

Your placement provider may ask to see your Blue Card at any time, so you should carry it with you at all times while on placement.
