|Welfare & Child Protection|
The Suffolk Cricket Board has adopted, and is fully committed to supporting the ECBs safe hands policy on Child protection, and places great value on ensuring the welfare of all young and vulnerable people in the game.
We run a Safe Hands Workshop for our Club Welfare Officers. Course details are published here when the next course is being run.
Next course: tbc
The Safe Hands workshop is tailored for Child Welfare Officers in a cricket environment. All Club Welfare Officers need to attend this workshop and renew their certificate every three years. The workshop outlines the roles and responsibilities of Welfare Officers at National, County and Club level, and covers legislation and Government guidance, the procedure for reporting incidents / allegations and examples of situations a CWO may be asked to deal with.
At the workshop candidates will be given a copy of the ECB Safe Hands document which includes glossary of terms, definitions of abuse, reporting procedures, guidelines and advice for club policies, and rules and regulations of play.
News update from the County Welfare Officer can be found under our News Section of the website.
