Support and Training

Cricket Scotland recognises that adults working with children should be suitably trained and supported.  To this end we aim to use only properly qualified coaches during our activities.

Child Wellbeing and Protection training requirements are outlined below:

Any adult who regularly works with children in sport may be the person that a child chooses to tell about abuse happening in their life. It is vital that adults know how to respond and know how to share information with those who can help. As well as giving adults a basic awareness of what to do if they’re concerned about a child, it helps build confidence and knowledge in keeping children safe.

For more information on training opportunities and support please contact the Cricket Scotland Child Wellbeing and Protection Officer, Colin McDougall – childprotection@cricketscotland.com
