Warwickshire Cricket Foundation is dedicated to increasing equality, diversity, and inclusion in cricket throughout the county.

We believe cricket is a game that everyone can enjoy, whether they play, watch, officiate, volunteer, or get involved in any other way. While we strive to ensure that all of our work meets this promise, we will continue to add areas to this site that are particularly relevant.
