Safeguarding and the “Safe Hands” programme

The ECB’s ‘Safe Hands’ programme has developed and evolved over the last 13 years, but the overall aim remains the same. We want everyone involved in our recreational game to make children’s safety and well-being a major priority. The ECB also incorporates the ‘Safe Hands’ programme into our club accreditation programme ‘ECB Clubmark’, giving clubs and leagues clear guidance on how best to welcome young people into the sport and to keep them involved; YMCA CC has adopted this guidance and puts it into practice.

As we all know, team sports like cricket are a great way for children to acquire life-skills; learn how to work with others, interact with adults and take on specific roles and responsibilities.
