Information for Young People
You will see some information below about what cricket does to provide you with a fun and safe environment to enjoy the game. You will see what support is available to you from your club, county and ECB Safeguarding Team as well as some useful links and helplines which you may find appropriate for you.
As a game we want to ensure your views are listened to and actions are taken on those views.
It is important that you share with your club's committee what you feel about the game and what they can do to make you feel safe and get you to continue to enjoy the game.
Remember if you would like to share a concern about yourself or another young person, please use the ‘How to share a concern’ page on the website that talks you through who to contact.
If you are upset or worried about something, you should talk to an adult you trust
Listed below are some helplines and websites where you can get information, advice and support. If you or someone you know is experiencing problems with abuse, eating disorders, sexuality, drink and drugs, bullying, bereavement or something else, there is help available.
