Child Welfare

BCB and its National Governing Body, the ECB, are firmly and enthusiastically committed to continuing to provide an environment that is safe, welcoming and friendly for children and for all people to enjoy the game of cricket.

Safeguarding in cricket is based upon providing an enjoyable environment that meets the needs and requirements of children. A welcoming environment where children are asked for and are able to offer their views and opinions (for example, about the game, training sessions, or arrangements generally) is also a safer environment, where children feel more able to share concerns, and everyone feels more able to challenge poor practice or behaviour.

ECB has produced Safe Hands - Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children which can be downloaded from www.ecb.co.uk/ecb/safeguarding-children-and-child-protection/safe-hands.

Safe Hands does more than protect children in cricket, it promotes good practice, helps raise awareness and ensures people know what to do if they have any concerns about children or about the behaviour of adults in cricket.
