Child safeguarding

This Cricket Ireland Child Safeguarding Policy and Guide is designed to be a source of policy statements relating to safeguarding and a practical guide and reference document for cricket clubs and all those involved in cricket.

This guide takes into account relevant legislation and statutory guidance at the time of publication, but it does not intend to make the reader an expert on the legal framework, or the subject of safeguarding. Instead it offers practical guidance for those involved in providing cricket activities for children, aiming to increase general awareness of both mandatory requirements and good practice.

The Cricket Ireland Child Safeguarding Manual operates on both a national and local level, and is written to be applicable to all levels of the game across all areas of the country.  It is a mandatory requirement for every club affiliated to Cricket Ireland to adopt the manual and its policies.
