Safeguarding

At Suffolk Cricket, we take the welfare of our players, coaches, staff and volunteers extremely seriously. We are firmly committed to continuing to provide an environment that is safe, welcoming and friendly for everyone to enjoy the game of cricket.

The County has a Safeguarding Manager, Graham Moss whose role is to provide safeguarding leadership and management across all sectors and at all levels within SuffolkCricket to deliver our safeguarding strategies, training, policies, procedures and organisational aims. The key purpose of her role is to promote and protect the welfare of children and vulnerable adults at risk and create a safe environment for people to play cricket in our county.

Should you have a safeguarding issue that you would like advice on, require a DBS or you need to report any concerns, please contact Graham or Andy (deputy)directly:

Each affiliated club across the county has its own Club Safeguarding Officer who is nominated by the club, has a valid ECB DBS certificate and has attended the following training courses: –

  1. Safeguarding Young Cricketers – ECB online course.
    2. Safe Hands Workshop (or the refresher)

Please contact Suffolk Cricket Board directly to arrange the above training.

Graham  is the first point of contact for all clubs, but if you have any queries which you feel cannot be dealt with locally, please contact the ECB’s Child Protection Team on 020 7432 1200 or email safeguarding@ecb.co.uk  using the Safeguarding Referral form
