Blue Card made easy

Working with Children

Are you a regular volunteer for QFA, helping to run tournaments, refereeing or participating on our interstate fencing tour groups? If you answered yes then you might need to complete a Working With Children Check under Queensland's Blue Card system.

More information about who is required to have a Blue Card is available on this fact sheet: Blue Card System Information for Sporting Industry

Note, if you are a volunteer parent and your child is receiving the service you are providing you do not need to have a Blue Card.
