Blue cards and exemption cards for Licensed Care Services

In order to receive and maintain a licence, people involved with a licensed care service are required to be suitable to undertake their role within that service.

The Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability services has developed a guideline to clarify the screening requirements for different roles within a care service.

Blue Cards

Certain persons associated with licensed care services (persons in regulated employment) are required to hold a blue card or exemption card issued by the Department of Justice and Attorney General (DJAG).
