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.

Responding to, Recording and Reporting Concerns
