The ECB and Norfolk Cricket Board take Child Welfare issues very seriously. As a result, all clubs in Norfolk are required to appoint a Club Welfare Officer who is trained in Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) and Safe Hands which is the Cricket specific child welfare course.
In addition to this, all club volunteers and coaches who come into regular contact with children are required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. This also applies to all NCB volunteers and professional staff.
To assist with the monitoring and support of this area, the NCB have a County Welfare Officer who is the point of contact for all Welfare queries from Clubs or County Age Groups.
