Safeguarding - What it is and why its important.
Show Notes

We interview Ieuan Watkins, safeguarding officer with Criced Cymru / Cricket Wales and Glamorgan County Cricket Club and Laura Whapham Child Protection in Sport Officer with the NSPCC and working for the Child Protection in Sport Unit.

They introduce us to the whole concept of safeguarding and its history in the UK.  They discuss what has changed in the last 20 years of sports administration in the Uk and their role in establishing and developing a positive culture of enjoyment and fun around sport.

Ieuan talks to us about his work with Criced Cymru / Cricket Wales and they give us an insight into their work and what an ordinary working day looks like for those working in the safguarding area.

Both our guests are happy to be contacted by clubs or individuals.  Indeed, they feel this is the cornerstone of this culture they are trying to build.  You can look at the details around cricket in Wales by looking here:
