Blue Card Services – Organizer of Blue Card Services and Volunteering Queensland

The purpose of the blue card system is to contribute to the creation of safe and supportive environments for children and young people when receiving services and participating in activities which are essential to their development and wellbeing, such as child care, education, sport, and cultural activities.

While many people are familiar with the blue card itself, it is important to be aware that the initial blue card screening is only the first component of a three part system which considers past, present, and future risks:

Blue card screening to determine a person’s eligibility to work with children and young people based on their known past behavior

Ongoing monitoring of all blue card holders and applicants which enables action to be taken to protect children and young people if the person is charged with a concerning offence, and

Mitigating future risk through the requirement for organisations providing child related services to develop and implement child and youth risk management strategies.
