It has come to the ECB’s notice that there is a potential issue regarding individuals who have completed the Coach Support Worker (CSW) training but not completed either a DBS application, or the Safeguarding Young Cricketers online module, or both.

Potentially this could mean people are taking the CSW course, then going back and helping out at their clubs without being vetted and without having the necessary safeguarding awareness.

Could you please check in your club that all individuals working with children – including those in a CSW role – have been properly vetted, and that CSWs in particular have completed their online Safeguarding Young Cricketer’s course.”
