Proudly supported by Cummins
At Cummins we create the power solutions people depend on. We specialise in diesel and alternative fuel engines and generators, and related components and technology. It’s what we’ve done for more than 100 years. That history makes us proud, but the future pulls us forward.
We have 50,000 employees worldwide and we are accelerating the effort to achieve gender equality through initiatives such as Cummins Powers Women and the Women’s Empowerment Network (WEN).
WEN ’s mission is ‘Empowering women through equality and inclusion’.
We want everyone involved in cricket in Northamptonshire to have a safe, positive experience and be welcomed and supported in their activities.
Northants Cricket is committed to ensuring that all young people (aged under 18) who play cricket in the County have a safe, welcoming and positive experience. We comply fully with the ECB Safe Hands Policy – this is the England and Wales’ Cricket Board’s policy to safeguard children within 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.
Children and Vulnerable Adults
Everyone involved in cricket, has a duty to ensure the safety and welfare of any young person or vulnerable adult involved in the sport. From prevention to protection, safeguarding in sport is Everyone’s Responsibility and involves keeping young people out of harm’s way both on and off the cricket pitch. It is not the responsibility of any individuals to determine if abuse has taken place, but it is their responsibility, and the responsibility of everyone within cricket, to confidentially report concerns to the relevant Club Safeguarding Officer, the County Safeguarding Officer, ECB or Child Protection experts.
