Our safeguarding policy recognises that the welfare and interests of children, young people and adults considered at risk are paramount in all circumstances. It aims to ensure that regardless of age, gender, religion, beliefs, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or socio-economic background, all children, young people and adults considered at risk have a positive and enjoyable experience of the activities delivered by Surrey Cricket.
