Safe Hands Validility Period Extented
Due to the ongoing uncertainty around national restrictions due to COVID, the ECB Safeguarding team have taken the decision to extent the validility period of the Safe Hands webinar certificate from 12 to 24 months. This means, for example, that club safeguarding (welfare) officers who completed the Safe Hands webinar in June 2020 do not need to undertake the course again until June 2022.

Child Welfare Safe Hands
Clubs are reminded that every CWO is required to go on a Safe Hands course even if they are employed in Education or Social Services and have undergone child welfare training as part of their employment. As advised by the County Welfare Officer and ECB this is so that they receive the "cricket perspective" and understand the sport's child welfare structures and reporting systems. For details of courses check this site for details or contact Ray Knowles, the YCB Child Welfare Officer on 01924 405512.
