Reporting Discrimination

Discrimination of any kind is unacceptable.

If you are aware of or witness discrimination at any level of cricket in Gloucestershire, we want to hear from you. Whatever discrimination you are aware of or have witnessed, your report will be reviewed and dealt with by the relevant cricket organisation. Reporting discrimination will help us to ensure cricket is a welcoming, inclusive, and diverse game for everyone across our County.

The ECB Anti-Discrimination Code launched in 2022, ensures that any incidence of discrimination in the professional game and in recreational leagues and clubs that fall under the ECB’s jurisdiction can be subject to disciplinary processes and sanctions.

How to report discrimination

You can choose whether to report discrimination anonymously or alongside your name and contact details. Only by working together with players, spectators, coaches, officials, and clubs can we make the progress cricket deserves.

What happens when you make a report?

Every report you submit is reviewed by the ECB in order to determine who should deal with the report. Where the concern raised is a matter for the ECB to investigate, the ECB will investigate. Where the concern raised relates to other cricket organisation(s) and is a matter for such other cricket organisation(s) to review and/or investigate, the ECB will share the report with the relevant cricket organisation(s) so that they can review and/or investigate the matter.
