If you work or volunteer with kids in Queensland, we've got some news.
On August 31, the Queensland Government made changes to the blue card system to make it better. Better for you, better for our kids.
These changes include new laws that will apply to organisations, paid workers and volunteers.
Stronger security with photo ID on all new cards. A new online application process, shorter approval timeframes for most applicants and an online portal for organisations to help them manage their blue card holders and applicants.
The new system also includes a No Card, No Start policy, which means you must have a valid blue card before you start work.
By working together and knowing how the changes affect you, we can build a stronger blue card system and keep Queensland kids safe.
