We loved seeing the post this week from Laburnum Cricket Club, see below how they have utilised association sponsor Childsafe to endorse Child Safe Policies.
Hello to all members of LCC,
The committee recently held an extraordinary meeting where we focused on the responsibilities of the club in relation to the findings from the final report of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
Cricket Australia has provided guidance to community clubs in relation to our response and commitment to Safeguarding Children and Young People, and we subsequently undertook to obtain support from “ChildSafe”, endorse this policy, and adopt the Cricket Australia recommendations.
The Committee made the following official endorsement:
“That the Laburnum Cricket Club endorse and adopt (1) Australian Cricket’s Policy for Safeguarding Children and Young People, (2) Australian Cricket’s ‘Looking After Our Kids’ Code of Behaviour for Affiliated Associations and Clubs, and (3) Australian Cricket’s Commitment to Safeguarding Children and Young People, effective as at 25 June 2019”.
Our success in making our club a safe place for children and young people relies on all members and we look forward to working with you to make this work at LCC.
