Multicultural Development Officer Consultation Evening
Cricket Scotland wish to invite representatives from cricket clubs and the local community along to an open consultation evening Poloc Cricket Club (Shawholm, G43 1AT) on Monday 15th August, 7.30pm regarding a proposed Multicultural Cricket Development Officer role and remit with Cricket Scotland based in Glasgow.
Cricket Scotland has the motivational aim of `Inspiring Scotland to Choose Cricket` as we seek to grow the reach and popularity of the sport to unprecedented levels. Key to `Inspiring Scotland to Choose Cricket` is that we recognise Scotland is a hugely diverse country with a multicultural mix of people that we are all proud of. We also recognise that cricket as a sport has strong representation from BAME communities and we want to ensure we are meeting the needs of a large section of our membership and stakeholders, and encouraging as many people from all backgrounds to engage with cricket.
We also want to ensure we provide a voice for these important communities, and hopefully create a real sense of belonging and vested interest in cricket in Scotland.
Therefore, at this consultation we want to share our proposal with our target audience and get some feedback on the direction we are heading. Joining us to help facilitate the evening will be Arfan Akram and Dan Feist from Essex Cricket who have engaged in a similar approach over the last 3 years. They will be able to provide some insights and examples into how this approach could work and benefit those communities and cricket in Scotland.
I strongly believe this can be a hugely positive step forward for cricket in Scotland so I hope we can get as many people to join us for the evening to help shape the future of cricket.
This is an open consultation but we hope that each cricket club would send at least 1 representative to attend. Please feel free to share with your contacts and interested people in your local communities.
It would be appreciated if you can indicate your attendance by simply emailing – firstname.lastname@example.org - so we have an idea of numbers on the night.
If you have any further questions please contact Cricket Scotland Head of Participation, Ian Sandbrook on the details above.
