Welfare Officer

 

 

 

 

 

Hello,

 

My name is Justine Fidler and I’d like to introduce myself as Hampton Hill Cricket Club’s new Club Welfare Officer.

 

HHCC is committed to providing a safe and enjoyable environment for all cricketers, young and slightly older and, as such, my role within the Club is to promote the importance of safeguarding all children and young adults (aged under 18 years) involved with our sport by following the ECB’s Safe Hands Policy for Safeguarding Children, and to ensure that all Club members, captains, vice-captains, coaches, players, parents and volunteers are fully aware of the duty of care that we ALL have to these younger members.

ECB Safe Hands Policy

 

The ECB has produced Safe Hands – Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children as part of its commitment to ensuring that the game provides a safe, friendly and enjoyable experience for children.

The Policy provides the sport with the tools to ensure that the whole game takes up the challenge of continuously improving the participation conditions for children. Safe Hands greatly enhances the value of existing activities and practices throughout ECB’s extensive club and schools network and ensures that the many thousands of coaches and volunteers integral to the game are supported.

The Policy is backed up by a comprehensive training and education programme, a structured implementation plan and a sensitive process to respond to concerns.

A copy of the Safe Hands Policy can be found in the Club House (Portakabin) throughout the playing season.

As Club Welfare Officer I will act as first point of contact for any person who has a concern about child welfare and protection – please feel free to contact me on 07538 967471. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank my predecessor, Vicki Taylor, for her years as Club Welfare Officer and for all her hard work in getting HHCC up-to-speed on safeguarding.

Please feel free to come and meet me at the Club next Sunday morning, 15th April, when the Kwik Cricket season starts.

 

Justine
