Safe Hands Management System (SHMS)
The Safe Hands Management System, also known as SHMS, is an online Club Management Tool introduced in 2021 to support clubs in proactively managing safeguarding. It allows clubs to keep an accurate online record of all the individuals and volunteers in regulated roles at their club, and it directly links with ECB systems, so is always a real time indicator of your clubs safeguarding provision.
All of our clubs have now been invited to onboard onto the SHMS with many of our clubs pro-actively using the system to manage their safeguarding provision. We recently held a SHMS training webinar with the presentation slides available here.
We would like to remind all clubs of the SHMS requirements prior to the start of the 2023 season, by 30 April:
- Clubmark Clubs: Be fully compliant on SHMS.
- Clubs with Junior sections and/or National Programmes: Ensure SHMS is fully reflective of your clubs position with volunteers and DBS checks in place
- All other affiliated clubs: Have provided details of your Club Administrator and be onboarded & populated SHMS
For further SHMS information and support, please contact either Brian Hoyle or Ben Osborne.
