Action Indoor Cricket England is firmly committed to providing an environment that is safe and welcoming for children to enjoy themselves at cricket, coaching, training, and games, as well as the social interactions available at the AICE headquarters.
Creating a culture where their views are asked for, as well as being able to offer their own opinions, helps develop an environment where children feel able to share concerns and everyone can challenge poor practice or behaviour.
If you have any concerns about a child or the behaviour of an adult you should share these immediately.
Action Indoor Cricket England encourage anyone with any concerns to contact us. You can do this by calling Neeta Patel (AICE Safeguarding and Welfare Officer) on 07976 733489 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, please contact the NSPCC.
If a child is at immediate risk do not hesitate to call the Police or local services.
AICE works closely with the ECB to ensure that ECB Safe Hands & Safeguarding procedures are applied to the indoor world as well as outdoor cricket. Take a look at the links below to find more information on safeguarding and protecting children.
