Safe Hands

The ECB is committed to continuing to provide an environment that is safe, welcoming and friendly for children to enjoy the game of cricket.

Safe hands – Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children provides the framework and the tools for the whole game to take up the challenge of continuously improving the cricket environment for children and young people.

Safe Hands ensures that the many thousands of coaches and volunteers integral to the game are supported.

The Policy is backed up by a comprehensive training and education programme, a structured implementation plan and a sensitive process to respond to concerns.
