Welfare Officer Training - Safe Hands courses

The Time to Listen training course is no longer available in cricket. It has been replaced by a cricket specific version linked directly to the Safe Hands Safeguarding Policy. The new course is called the Safe Hands Workshop for Club Welfare Officers and is valid for all Club Welfare Officers who need to attend training. The new course meets the ECB Clubmark requirements and should be renewed every three years.
