Renew your blue card

We must receive your renewal application before your current card expires for you to continue working in regulated child-related employment. If you do this, you can continue to work and volunteer even after the card has expired.

If you do not renew your card before it expires, you will be unable to continue working or volunteering. You will be subject to No Card, No Start and will need to reapply for your blue card. Watch our on time renewal video for more information.

We send card holders a reminder text to renew 10 weeks before your current card expires. Please keep your contact details up-to-date so you receive your renewal reminder.
