Cheshire Cricket Board
Safeguarding within Cricket
Cheshire Cricket Board Cricket is committed to ensuring that all young people (aged under 18) and vulnerable adults involved with cricket in Cheshire have a safe, welcoming and positive experience. We comply with England Cricket Board’s (ECB) Safe Hands Policy which promotes good practice, helps raise awareness and ensures people know what to do if they have any concerns about children or the behaviour of adults in cricket.
Since 2003, when the ECB policy on Safeguarding (Safe Hands) was issued, a network of Club Welfare Officers has become established supported by our County Welfare Officer.
Whilst concerns about Child Welfare should be directed initially to the Club Welfare Officer, the County Safeguarding Officer is available for help and advice.
