Cricket Scotland Club Child Wellbeing and Protection Policy : Support Course 21/01/2020

For your Urgent Action

Dear Club CPO and Club Secretary,  

(Association/Union Secretaries for info)

Please see the following from Colin McDougall the Cricket Scotland Child Protection Officer.  

Colin is arranging courses in all of the regions to provide guidance and support around the CS CWPP policy as follows (more details below):

21st January 2020:    Aberdeenshire           Sport Aberdeen, Broadfold House, Broadfold Road, Aberdeen, AB23 8EE, Conference Room 1        7pm to 8.30 pm


As you may be aware, clubs have been mandated by the Board of Cricket Scotland to adopt and implement the above policy. To date 75% of clubs have formally adopted the policy and begun the implementation process. Feedback from clubs has been noted and it is clear that some assistance and clarification is required. Given that compliance with the policy will be a condition of membership of Cricket Scotland, support to clubs will be provided through a number Regional based meetings. It is anticipated these meetings will take approximately one and a half hours. The primary purpose will to be indicate the minimum requirements in safeguarding that clubs must achieve and will also provide an opportunity to update clubs on forthcoming changes to legislation which will impact on their procedures.

Guidance will be provided on the areas of:

The Role of the Club Child Wellbeing and Protection Officer
Requirements in Recruiting Volunteers
Codes of Conduct
Safe in Cricket Guidelines (The following areas appear to require clarification)
Physical Contact
Sexual Activity
Managing Challenging Behaviour
Transporting Children
Procedures for the use of photography, film, video
Communication Technology and Social Media
Clubhouses and Changing Rooms
Anti-Bullying Policy
Consent Form
Safeguarding Training Requirements
Responding to Concerns

It is important that clubs are aware of the legal requirements that must be complied with and attendance at the course will provide a pathway to compliance.
