West Bergholt Cricket Club - Safeguarding

Safeguarding and Child Welfare at West Bergholt
We take seriously our responsibility for the safeguarding of young people at West Bergholt Cricket Club. As such, we have adopted the ECB 'Safe Hands' policy to ensure best practice and the best possible experience of cricket for all young people at our club. 
All necessary DBS checks (for example, team captains, committee members and key volunteers at West Bergholt Cricket Club) have been carried out.
Our Club Welfare Officer, Teri-Leigh Jones, is the first port of call for any questions or concerns relating to safeguarding and whose details can be found at the clubhouse or contacted through our 'Contact' page. 
Please find policies relating to Safeguarding below.

Anti-bullying Policy
WBCC is committed to providing a caring, friendly and safe environment for all of our junior players so that they can train and play in a relaxed and secure atmosphere. Bullying of any kind is unacceptable at our club. If bullying does occur, then all children should be able to tell and know that incidents will be dealt with promptly and effectively. WBCC is a TELLING club. This means that anyone who knows that bullying is happening is expected to tell someone who can do something about it.
