Safe Hands: The England & Wales Cricket Board’s Policy to for 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 to protect children in cricket, it is to introduce good practice, raise awareness and provide piece of mind.
The ECB has produced Safe Hands – Policy for Safeguarding Children to assist clubs in achieving best practise. This policy is distributed at the Safehands Workshop for CWOs (formerly TTL) and subsequent updates are sent to attendees home addresses. The ECB Safehands page where you can download the policy in bitesize sections.
