CCCC Welfare

Dear Member, Parent or Carer,

The City of Cambridge Cricket Club welcomes you and your children to the club. We hope that your child(ren) will enjoy being a club member and will enjoy the cricket coaching, training, and matches, as well as the social interactions available at the club.

We all fully adhere to the ‘Safe Hands’ Policy for Safeguarding Children in Cricket. All of the adults at the club who work with children and meet the necessary criteria are vetted by the ECB. This includes the enhanced DBS and ‘Barred List’ check (formerly known as CRB checks). ‘Safe hands’, ECB’s Policy for safeguarding Children in cricket, is available to view online at https://www.ecb.co.uk/safeguarding/policy-and-procedures

Whilst we hope your child will be happy and content at the club, we understand that sometimes questions, concerns or difficulties may arise. Please feel able to raise these as soon as possible, so we can rectify things at the earliest opportunity. If you have a question regarding coaching, please approach the coach in the first instance. However, please do not interrupt coaching sessions, especially nets practice, as this may distract the coach when he or she needs to be supervising the children. Our coaches will be happy to speak to you before or after training or at another convenient time.

If you have any concern about your child or another child, or about the behaviour of any adult at the club, please speak to me, the Club Welfare officer – you can contact me at welfare@cityofcambridgecc.co.uk. If your concern is about me, you may contact the County Welfare Officer Robert Benson at rjb.sawstoncc@gmail.com

Finally, all members are reminded of the club’s code of conduct for members and guests. The full policy statement can be found below, along with a range of other welfare policy statements. If you have any questions on any of the policies then please do get in touch immediately.

We do hope that you and your child(ren) enjoy being a member of the City of Cambridge Cricket Club, and if you have any concerns, do please let me know.

Yours faithfully

Clare Gordon

Club Welfare Officer
