Dear Club Safeguarding (Welfare) Officer
We hope this email finds you well. You are receiving this email from the ECB Safeguarding Team as you have completed the Safe Hands webinar between June 2020 and January 2021.
We are getting in touch to let you know about a change to the validity period of your Safe Hands webinar certificate. The original validity period for the Safe Hands webinar was 12 months, however due to the ongoing uncertainty around national restrictions due to COVID, we have now taken the decision to extend the period to 24 months.
This means that your certificate will remain valid for two years from the date that you completed the webinar. For example, if you completed the Safe Hands webinar in June 2020, you do not need to undertake the Safe Hands course again until June 2022. This also applies to Club Safeguarding (Welfare) Officers undertaking the webinar going forward.
You do not need to take any action, we are in the process of updating our records to reflect this change and have communicated this to your County Safeguarding Officer.
The ECB Safeguarding Team
