The club is disability positive and seeks to break down barriers to disability inclusion. We believe that everyone deserves to have the same opportunities to enjoy the wonderful game of cricket.

The club Disability Inclusion Lead will provide a source of advice and practical support to players and other club members. The post holder will play a crucial role in ensuring that the club is meeting the needs of disabled members, that they are integrated into the club and that our offer to them is grown and developed.

* This does not require the post-holder to be actively involved in coaching, but to work with coaches to ensure the programme adequately meets the needs of disabled players. 

The role is voluntary but reasonable expenses incurred in the course of carrying out the role can be claimed.
