DBS Disclosures Update 2021

Thursday 21st January 2021

Due to the National Lockdown and inevitable restrictions in the coming months, the ECB has decided to continue for the foreseeable future with the current process of Clubs not being able to access the DBS system for initiating or verifying of DBS disclosures.

To initiate a DBS for someone requiring a one, please email Louise Ward with the following information:

    • Full name of person (as it appears on their passport or driving licence)
    • Salutation (Mr, Mrs, Miss or Ms)
    • Date of Birth
    • Email
    • Their role (e.g. Coach, Club Safeguarding Officer, All Stars Activator, Umpire)
    • Club

Louise will start the process for them. During this process they must choose a verifier – there are approximately ten people in Kent currently able to complete verifying, which will be done remotely via videocall.

Applicants must email scans/pictures of their 3 chosen ID documents to their verifier before their videocall. They must also have these documents to hand during the call in order to complete the ID check.
