Safeguarding Courses for Club Welfare Officers

Club Welfare Officers (CWOs) need to complete the Safe Hands and Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) workshops every three years. 

The next sets of courses will take place in spring 2020 - course dates and booking links will be published in February 2020.

Do you hold a valid safeguarding qualification from another sport or profession?

Such a qualification may mean you do not need to complete a further Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) course.  In this instance please contact the County Welfare Officer (details below).

As well as attending our own workshops, SPC courses are also available by clicking on the logo below:

Club Welfare Officers who have previously attended a face to face course can renew online: click here for details (cost currently £16.99, there are three versions of the course - Deaf and Disabled Children, Digital Kids and Positive Parents).

Safeguarding Courses for Coaches

Coaches working with players under 18 (as at 31 August) must obtain or renew their safeguarding qualification every three years. 

To renew Safeguarding Young Cricketers (SYC) online and for free, sign up and ECB will send you confirmation in order to take the course. 

Then log in at the ECB e-learning website - click here to recover your username or password.

After following these steps email ECB e-learning in the event of any query.

As an alternative coaches may attend face to face Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) workshops which can be booked via the UK Coaching website (usual cost around £30).

Coaches working with players under 18 (as at 31 August) must obtain or renew insurance cover, an ECB Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and first aid certificates every three years.

For further information please visit the courses for coaches page of our website.

County Welfare Officer

The County Welfare Officer in Hampshire is Helen Wheeler, who can be contacted via email and / or by telephone 07793 047324.

Safeguarding Forum

Hampshire Cricket Board Ltd holds an annual Safeguarding Forum for club welfare officers and chairs.  The aim of the event is to provide additional support for club welfare officers and share the latest developments on safeguarding in cricket.  Details of the 2020 forum will appear here.

Where clubs do not have a trained welfare officer, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) advises that legal responsibility lies with club executive officers so this invitation is relevant to all chairs of clubs with junior members (i.e. aged under 18 as at 31 August 2018).
