Kidmore End Cricket Club is committed to ensuring that all Young People who play cricket have a safe and positive experience.

Kidmore End Cricket Club is committed to developing and implementing policies and procedures which ensure that everyone knows and accepts their responsibility in relation to a duty of care for Young People. It is committed to ensuring that there are correct and comprehensive reporting procedures, by promoting good practice and sound recruitment procedures for all individuals working within Cricket. We recognise that it is not the responsibility of those individuals working in Cricket to determine if abuse has taken place, but it is their responsibility to act upon and report any concerns.

The policy sets out a framework to fulfil our commitment to good practice and the protection of Young People in its care within Cricket.

This Policy applies either directly or indirectly to all individuals working within Cricket (in a paid or voluntary capacity) according to their level of contact with Young People in Cricket.

Our appointed Club Welfare Officer is Renate Berry. In Renate’s absence please contact our Club Chairman, Mark New or Secretary, David New. All their contact details are displayed in the pavilion on the Club Safeguarding noticeboard.                                                   

We fully support the English and Wales Cricket Board ‘Safe Hands’ ‘Welfare of Young People in Cricket Policy’ document.
