At Lincolnshire Cricket, we take the welfare of our players, coaches, staff and volunteers extremely seriously. We are firmly committed to continuing to provide an environment that is safe, welcoming and friendly for everyone to enjoy the game of cricket.

The County has a Safeguarding Manager, Helen Jones whose job it is to provide safeguarding leadership and management across all sectors and at all levels within Lincolnshire Cricket to deliver our safeguarding strategies, training, policies, procedures and organisational aims. The key purpose of her role is to promote and protect the welfare of children and vulnerable adults at risk and create a safe environment for people to play cricket in our county.

Should you have a safeguarding or welfare issue that you would like advice on, require a DBS or you need to report any concerns, please contact Helen directly:

To support Helen within the cricket community, each club across the county should have its own Club Welfare Officer who is nominated by the club, has a valid ECB DBS certificate and has attended the following courses: –

1. Safeguarding and Protecting Children (SPC) – online courses available through Sports Coach UK by clicking here
2. Safe Hands Workshop (or the refresher) run through Lincolnshire Cricket by Helen.

Please contact Helen directly to reserve a place on the next Safe Hands Workshop or refresher course.

Helen is the first point of contact for all clubs, but if you have any queries which you feel cannot be dealt with locally, please contact the ECB’s Child Protection Team on 020 7432 1200 or email
