has recently received an update from the ECB Safeguarding team outlining Safeguarding during national and local COVID-19 restrictions.
Whilst there may not be many new incidents in cricket activity during the current lockdown, safeguarding is still a priority.
As a result of the Government’s current national lockdown restrictions and advice from the Disclosure and Barring Service, the ECB are continuing with Online ID verifications until further notice. This includes the initiation and verification of DBS applications.
The System access will remain the same, restricted to a limited group of Primary and Secondary users at County & ECB Level and Video ID Meetings are to be used instead of Face-to-Face Meetings. Unfortunately, we are unable to increase the number of verifiers across the network at this time but would appreciate your continued support in carrying out this process, until such time as the service can resume to the standard practice.
Whilst it is not ideal for you to have to carry out checks outside of your county, we would appreciate inclusivity across all the network during this difficult period.
DBS verification's are still currently online and can only be done by County Board staff. For any DBS's that need completing, please contact
