Safeguarding Children and 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.
ECB has produced Safe Hands - Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children - which can be downloaded from ecb.co.uk.
Frome Cricket Club policies and statements can be found in the CLub documents section of this website.
This Safeguarding and Child Protection section at www.ecb.co.uk/ecb/safeguarding-children-and-child-protection/ contains full details of that Policy and other relevant documentation - plus advice and information on vetting checks (more commonly known as Criminal Records Bureau checks).
Frome Cricket Club fully supports the ECB Safe Hands Policy. All our coaches & volunteers are subject to the relevent Vetting checks and our coaches are all affiliated to the ECB Coaches Association.
