Club Welfare Committee
The role of the Welfare Committee is to safeguard the young people at Shenfield Cricket Club.
Safeguarding Children at Shenfield Cricket Club
Shenfield Cricket Club has adopted the England Cricket Board's (ECB) 'Safe Hands – Cricket's Policy for Safeguarding Children'. A full copy of this document is available at the main bar or can be accessed in two parts at the ECB's website: www.ecb.co.uk/ecb/safeguarding-children-and-child-protection/safe-hands/
The Principle strand of the 'Safe Hands' safeguarding policy is the provision of robust processes and reporting procedures for concerns. In response, Shenfield Cricket club:
- has produced its own Safeguarding policy in which we state our commitment to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for all young cricketers
- appointed a Trained Welfare Officer - to lead the Club Welfare and Safeguarding Committee.
- has robust processes and reporting procedures to ensure appropriate action is taken as a concern is raised. Should you have any concerns regarding the safety / welfare of children playing cricket at Shenfield Cricket Club, please contact:
Club Welfare Officer: Mairéad Pryor - Mobile: 07961 707324
Our Welfare Officer and assistants have obtained three specific qualifications, a current CRB check / attended a 'Safeguarding & Protecting Children' workshop/ attended a 'Time to Listen' or ECB 'Safe Hands' C.W.O. Workshop.
