ECB Safe Hands Training Courses for new and existing Club Welfare Officers:
Northumberland Cricket Board is firmly and enthusiastically committed to continuing to provide an environment that is safe, welcoming and friendly for children and for all people to enjoy the game of cricket.
Safeguarding in cricket is based upon providing an enjoyable environment that meets the needs and requirements of children. A welcoming environment where children are asked for and are able to offer their views and opinions (for example, about the game, training sessions, or arrangements generally) is a safer environment, where children feel more able to share concerns, and everyone feels more able to challenge poor practice or behaviour.
