Using cricket to bring people together

Through small steps that make a real difference, we will ensure that the players who wear the Bear & Ragged Staff, fans and staff all feel safe and welcome.

We have made strides in this area on and off the field, but we need, and want, to do better.  This plan sets out our intentions, but we know that it’s our actions and outcomes that people will judge us on, not our policy statements.

Multifaith Charter

We have worked with local faith groups to devise devised a Multifaith Charter which defines how the Club will welcome and serve the multi-cultural communities of the region.

In order to achieve our ambitions, the Club commits to work in collaboration with all faith communities to deliver this charter and recognises the important role faith communities play within our region.

We stand against discrimination in all its forms and are committed to ensuring that cricket is a game for everyone. If you have experienced or witnessed discrimination you can report it to WCCC through the above, or directly to the ECB via their website here.

Any reports will then be triaged by either WCCC or the ECB depending on where it has been reported, and investigated by the relevant cricket organisation.
