We want everyone involved in cricket in Northamptonshire to have a safe, positive experience and be welcomed and supported in their activities.
Northamptonshire County Cricket Club is committed to ensuring that all children and adults at risk 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 behavior of adults in cricket.
Children and Adults at risk
Everyone involved in cricket, has a duty to ensure the safety and welfare of any child or adult at risk 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.
