Compliance evidence - proforma
At present no cricket is being played and there are considerable restrictions on the availability of courses and DBS checks. We are aware of proposed changes to the ECB safeguarding proposals and kitemark process, but we await the detail. Meanwhile, progress is being made on agreeing reporting processes to meet the club's Welfare policy which requires:
- The Management Committee to monitor welfare performance regularly. A ‘standing agenda’ item will require reports from the Welfare Officer or a nominated Panel Member on key information they may consider necessary from time to time, such information may include but not be restricted to details on any major welfare incidents including serious injury, health concerns including viral and other threatening developments, complaints, alleged abuse, conduct/suspensions and statistics on police and or other screening, welfare and first aid courses including attendance and outcome. Latest practice and recommendations and report on policy updates are also likely to be requested.
- Regular reports on all or some of these topics for the Cricket Secretary and Head of Junior Cricket and Football Secretary, according to their defined requirements.
- In recognition of concerns over potential Social Media abuse and related emotional harm, an annual audit on the club’s capability and outcomes from a welfare perspective, to be carried out by a Volunteer who is considered by the VSG to have the capability to carry such a review and who is independent of the Club’s communications processes.
