Alleyn Cricket Club acknowledges that it has a duty of care to safeguard all young persons who are engaged in cricketing activities within the Club. It ensures this by putting practical measures in place where it is located, to minimise the likelihood of foreseeable harm arising.
The Club fully adheres to the practices and guidelines as laid out in the ECB Safe Hands Policy.
All coaches, managers and captains who have regular contact with young people are required to hold an enhanced DBS clearance. Regular safeguarding awareness training is provided for all coaches, managers and captains within the Club.
Safeguarding is the responsibility of all members of the Club and the Club encourages all to enjoy and develop their cricketing skills within a safe environment.
It is an ECB requirement that the Club appoints a welfare officer (Digby Hunt) who with appropriate training is tasked with the oversight and promotion of safeguarding within the Club and reports directly to the committee. The welfare officer ensures that there are clear lines of communication and accountability on all matters that relate to safeguarding.
The Club has a transparent and accountable safeguarding policy that is supportive of all members of the Club.
Please refer any safeguarding enquires to the welfare officer, Digby Hunt.
