Welfare

Our aim is to promote cricket for all in a friendly and enjoyable environment where all children have an opportunity to take part in the game of cricket and develop new skills irrespective of their starting ability. We have held the ECB Clubmark status since 2012, with our latest accreditation being confirmed in October 2019, which is a testimony to our determination to run a professional operation even though we are entirely volunteer-run with all funds being used to support the cricket.

Sonning CC is fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of all its members. The Club believes that it is important that members, coaches, administrators and parents associated with the Club should, at all times, show respect and understanding for the safety and welfare of others. 

Whilst we hope your child will be happy and content at the club, we understand that sometimes questions, concerns or difficulties may arise. Therefore, members are encouraged to be open at all times and to share any concerns or complaints that they may have about any aspect of the Club with us as soon as possible, so we can rectify things at the earliest opportunity.  

Club Welfare Officer 

Your Club Welfare Officer is your first point of contact if you have any safeguarding concerns about your child or another child, or about the behaviour of any adult at the club.  If you have a question regarding coaching, please approach the coach in the first instance. 

Our Club Welfare Officer, Mary Keenan, can be contacted on 07803 086423 or by email at welfare@sonningcc.com. Mary will also be at most of our Friday night training sessions during the summer, should you wish to speak to her in person.

If for any reason Mary is not available, or if your concern is about Mary, you may contact the County Welfare Officer David Brown on 07769 705222 or by email david@bradfieldcc.org.

Please see our Safeguarding Policy Statement, Junior Code of Conduct, Member Code of Conduct and Privacy Policy for more details of how we manage safeguarding at our club.   We have adopted the ECB's “Safe Hands” policy for safeguarding children in cricket, which is available to view online at www.ecb.co.uk/safeguarding or a copy is held by Mary.
