Berkshire Cricket supports the ECB Vision – We want cricket to be for everyone.

We want everyone involved in cricket in Berkshire to have a safe, positive experience and be welcomed and supported in their activities.

The Berkshire Cricket Foundation is committed to ensuring that all young people (aged under 18) who play cricket in Berkshire within affiliated Clubs or County squads have a safe, welcoming and positive experience.

We comply fully with the ECB Safe Hands Policy – this is the England and Wales’ Cricket Board’s policy to safeguard children within cricket. It promotes good practice, helps raise awareness and ensures people know what to do if they have any concerns about children or about the behaviour of adults in cricket.

Reporting Low-Level Safeguarding Concerns

If you have a concern about a low-level safeguarding incident, no matter how small or insignificant, it should be reported using the following online form:

ECB Safeguarding – Berkshire Low-Level Concern Reporting Form

A low-level safeguarding concern is one where behaviour falls below the expected standard. Examples could include breach of a code of conduct, inadvertent or thoughtless behaviour, social media contact with u18s, giving lifts home after training or matches or providing inadequate care or supervision.

If you would like to discuss the concern or if you have a serious concern please contact the County Safeguarding Manager at or 07789 250905.

If someone is at immediate risk or a potential crime has been committed you should contact the police.

Brian Cooper is the county Safeguarding Manager.
