Blue Card Yarning Circle

About this event

Blue Card Services will be presenting a Blue Card Yarning Circle for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members and organisations.

Each yarning circle will be an online catchup where we can yarn together about all things blue card.

We will yarn about:

  • Who needs a blue card
  • how to apply for a blue card
  • organisations obligations.

The yarning circles will go for about an hour with plenty of time to ask the blue card mob some questions.

After each session, the blue card mob will hang around to talk to people over the phone in case anyone wants to yarn on their own with us.

This event will be presented via Zoom.

Organiser Blue Card Services

Organiser of Online Yarning Circle Sessions

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 behaviour
  • 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.
