Child Safeguarding Toolkit for Cricket

Child safeguarding in cricket is a set of actions that help to ensure all children participating in the game of cricket have a positive experience and are safe from harm and abuse.

Organisations providing sports activities to children and young people have a duty of care to them. Everyone has a responsibility to support the care and protection of young people.

All children have the right to participate, enjoy and develop through sport, in a safe and inclusive environment, free from all forms of abuse, violence, neglect and exploitation.

Children have the right to have their voices heard and listened to. They need to know who they can turn to when they have a concern or problem with their participation in sport.

For Organisations

For Individuals
