Safeguarding, Duty of Care and Equality
All young people have a right to be safe
and enjoy their cricket. All County Boards and Clubs therefore have a
duty of care to all young people participating in cricket. We have a duty to
ensure the safety and welfare of any young person involved in related
activities, to safeguard them and protect them from reasonably
foreseeable forms of harm.
The club is committed to ensuring that
equality is incorporated across all aspects of its development.
The club respects the rights, dignity
and worth of every person and will treat everyone equally within the
context of their sport, regardless of age, ability, gender, race,
ethnicity religious belief, sexuality or social/economic status.
The club is committed to everyone having
the right to enjoy their sport in an environment free from threat of
intimidation, harassment and abuse. All club members have a
responsibility to oppose discriminatory behavior and promote equality
of opportunity. The club will deal with any incidence of
discriminatory behavior seriously, according to club disciplinary
