Blue Card Requirements (QLD)

Before you volunteer with Red Frogs in Queensland you must be a current Blue Card Holder, which allows you to work with children and young people. 

#how to apply

Application/Renewal of a Blue Card:

An individual who wishes to volunteer with Red Frogs Australia for Schoolies Week and does not have a Blue Card MUST submit a Blue Card application through the Blue Card Services Portal. As of the 1st of September, 2020 Blue Card Services will no longer accept paper applications

If the volunteer already has a Blue Card through their local church or workplace, they will need to link their card to Red Frogs Australia before the 13th of November, 2020. They can do this by emailing applications@redfrogs.com.au a copy of their valid Blue Card and photo ID, or, if the applicant has not yet received their physical card, a copy of their photo ID and their Blue Card Services account number. Applicants will receive their account number from Blue Card Services once they have created an account through the Blue Card Services Portal.

Exemption card:

If the individual is a Queensland Registered Teacher/Queensland Police Officer, they must submit an Exemption application through the Blue Card Services Portal. The Exemption card will then need to be linked to Red Frogs Australia. They can do this by emailing applications@redfrogs.com.au a copy of their valid Blue Card and photo ID, or, if the applicant has not yet received their physical card, a copy of their photo ID and their Blue Card Services account number. Applicants will receive their account number from Blue Card Services once they have created an account through the Blue Card Services Portal

Please note: If your Exemption card does not have an expiry date, you must renew it by 31 August 2023 or it will automatically expire.

Please Note:

  • At Schoolies, you may be asked to provide your Blue Card and photo ID. Please ensure you have a card with you on the day of your check-in.
  • All enquiries about your blue card are to be made to the Commission For Children & Young People on 1800 113 611.
  • You can still apply to be a volunteer even if you do not have a current blue card, however, final approval of your application will rely on your Blue Card being approved and a physical card received by Friday the 13th of November.

#Remember

You MUST have a blue card to volunteer with Red Frogs.

No "ifs" or "buts".

Already have an existing Blue Card?

You still need to link it to Red Frogs.

Police officers and registered teachers do not apply for blue cards.

But you will need to apply for an exemption card.

Blue cards are valid for three years.

So don't forget to renew.

There is no application fee for volunteers.

Yay!
