All clubs should have a qualified Club Safeguarding Officer (CSO) as an essential part of their safeguarding structure.
Training for Club Safeguarding Officers
Safe Hands Workshop
If your CSO attended a recent ECB Safe Hands Webinar please note that this qualification will only be valid for 24 months.
Club Safeguarding Officers that require the ECB Safe Hands Workshop qualification can find details of available course and how to book in the table below.
Online Safeguarding Young Cricketers module
Club Safeguarding Officers will need to complete the online Safeguarding Young Cricketers Certificate. To complete this course please email Brian Hoyle at the email address above with the following information:
Full name – Preferred email address – Club affiliation
We will then invite you to book onto the online Safeguarding Young Cricketers module with the SCF. You will then receive an email inviting you to book onto the module. Once you have booked on you will receive a second email from the ECB with a link and access details to your new ECB e-learning account.
Please log in to your e-learning account at https://elearning.ecb.co.uk in order to complete the module and ensure that you download your certificate. You may have to wait after registering before the module appears in your e-Learning.
ECB DBS check
If you need an ECB DBS you can ask your Club Safeguarding Officer (CSO) to initiate the online application for you, alternatively you can contact:
Brian.email@example.com or amanda.counsell@Somersetcricketfoundation.org
In order to initiate an application, the verifier will require:
- Full Name – That appears on ID documents (including title – Mr/Mrs/Miss/Ms/Dr)
- Date of Birth
- Preferred Email Address
- Club Affiliation
- Club Role
Once your application has been initiated, the system will issue you with an email which will contain a link for you to complete and submit your application.
Further information on how to complete your ECB DBS application can be found here.
As part of the application you will be required to select 3 forms of ID from a list of options, which you will then need to take with you to have verified in a face-to-face meeting with a verifier, this can be the person who initiated your application or another verifier you have found using the find a verifier tool.
Alternatively you will also be given a list of available local verifiers – the system will pick the verifier from your club if there is one. If not, it will give you a list of verifiers from your County.
If you cannot arrange a meeting with a verifier local to you, please contact Brian Hoyle using the email address above
Once you have had your documents verified your application will be dispatched to the DBS (for non-volunteers, there is one extra step involving payment before the application gets dispatched). Then, it is just a case of waiting for your certificate to arrive in the post.
Once you have received the certificate, the Safeguarding team at Lord’s may request for you to post it to them for further review, but only if there is content on it (a previous conviction or caution). If the certificate is clear, the process is complete and you do not need to do anything else.
