Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Norfolk Cricket Board supports the ECB Vision – We want cricket to be for everyone.

“A game belonging to us all, transcending age, gender, race, and ability. A sport connecting communities and improving lives by bringing people together through a shared passion.”

Norfolk Cricket Board are committed to action and change.

We recognise that change must happen. To attract people from different backgrounds and diverse communities, we must work together to evolve cricket’s culture, structures, and governance – at all levels. To be more inclusive and welcoming, we need to be intolerant of discrimination and abuse of any kind; systematically address barriers to entry and advancement; and build a more diverse workforce and governance structure.

The Foundations of our Norfolk Cricket Board EDI Plan

  • Empower people to make positive change across cricket
  • Build diverse teams that reflect the communities they serve
  • Develop inclusive environments where everyone feels welcome and safe
  • Lead with accountability and commitment

How to report discrimination

You can choose whether to report discrimination anonymously or alongside your name and contact details. Only by working together with players, spectators, coaches, officials, and clubs can we make the progress cricket deserves.
