DBS Checks

The England and Wales Cricket Board is firmly committed to creating a safe and enjoyable environment for children to enjoy the game.

Key to this is the recruitment and vetting of the many invaluable individuals who create many rewarding experiences in cricket.

All organisations working with children have safeguarding responsibilities and clear requirements placed upon them by legislation and guidance.

This applies whether you are a club, league panel or another organisation. It is there to ensure safe recruitment practices for individuals who work with children, including policies on when to obtain a criminal records check.

The roles in cricket that require ECB vetting are:

Welfare Officer (Club, League, County)
Volunteer Co-ordinator
Coach (volunteer or paid, assistant or lead)
Umpire
Scorer
Colt/Junior Manager
Age Group Manager
Open-Age Team Captain
Junior Supervisor
First Aider/Physiotherapist/Medical Support
ECB DBS checks have now moved to an online system – there are no paper applications involved.

The system is quick and simple to use.

For volunteers, we will also enrol you onto the Update Service which will mean that for most people, you may never have to do another DBS application in cricket.

The application has to be started by someone within cricket who knows you and the role that you are carrying out. This provides the game with an extra level of security, and prevents anyone from falsely obtaining an ECB DBS certificate if they are not actually involved in cricket.

Any queries about the DBS system or if you need to start your DBS process please contact Claire Langford clairelangford@herefordshirecricketltd.co.uk
