Safeguarding Children & Child Protection
The England and Wales Cricket Board is firmly and enthusiastically committed to ensuring that cricket provides a safe, friendly and enjoyable experience for all children.
Safeguarding in Cricket is based upon the concept of providing an enjoyable cricket environment that is tailored to the needs and requirements of children.
The Safeguarding Policy is not just designed to protect children involved in cricket, but to introduce good practice, raise awareness and provide piece of mind for parents and guardians.
ECB has produced Safe Hands - Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children which can be downloaded here in two sections from the ECB website. A full copy of this document also available in the Clubhouse.
The Safeguarding and Child Protection section of the website contains full details of that Policy and other relevant documentation - including advice and information on vetting checks (more commonly known as Criminal Records Bureau checks).
Brentwood Cricket Club fully supports the ECB Safe Hands Policy. All our coaches and volunteers are subject to the relevent Vetting procedures and our coaches are all affiliated to the ECB Coaches Association.
