Child Welfare is a Cricket Wales Priority
Each League, Association and Club is expected to appoint a Child Welfare Officer (CWO) to oversee Child Welfare policies insofar as they affect their club. The CWOs should be DBS checked (within the last three years), have attended a Safeguarding Children
course and should have attended the bespoke course for cricket, Safe Hands
. Current CWOs will need to repeat these courses every three years.
Ieuan and his team have arranged a large number of Safe Hands
courses as follows:
The courses are just £20, the cost of which
can be covered as it is understood through an advance application through Community Chest.

see the below circulation from the NSPCC about a new initiative they
Ieuan watkins commented, "I have to say I think this is fantastic and I would
encourage you to circulate this throughout your leagues and throughout
the Cricket World."
The NSPCC is launching a public education campaign, called Share Aware,
to help parents keep their children safe online. The campaign is aimed
at parents and carers of children aged 8-12 – the age at which they
start doing more online, become more independent and use a greater range
of devices. The campaign aims to encourage parents and carers to
understand online safety and to have conversations with their children
about keeping safe.
