Club Safeguarding Officers are vital members of the club and key to making an environment safe, welcoming and friendly for children to enjoy the game of cricket.
Why do clubs need a Club Safeguarding Officer?
Whilst everyone is responsible for safeguarding,
the Club Safeguarding Officer will make sure the policies and procedures are in place, and that everyone who should be vetted to work with children, is vetted by the ECB.
They are the person that others come to if they have concerns, and having attended specific training, will know what to do in order to assist, or who to ask for further help.
Training for Club Safeguarding officers
Club Safeguarding Officers need to attend two sets of initial training:
- The Safeguarding and Protecting Children course run by Sportscoach UK.
- The ‘Safe Hands Workshop’ which is run by the local County Board.
An ECB Vetting check (DBS) is required annually and the above two requirements should be updated every three years.
