Safeguarding within Cricket


Cheshire Cricket Board  is committed to ensuring that all children, young people (aged under 18) and adults who may be at risk 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 Safeguarding Officers has become established supported by our County Safeguarding Officer.

Whilst safeguarding concerns and incidents should be initially reported to the Club Safeguarding Officer, the County Safeguarding Officer is available for help and advice.

Deputy County Safeguarding Officer: Sarah Hallas
