The Clubmark award shows that a club is sustainable, well run and provides the right environment for its members. Clubmark accreditation also means your club is recognised as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages, as well as assuring parents and carers that they are choosing the right option for their young people.
To obtain accreditation, clubs are asked to provide evidence that they meet a series of criteria.
This is done by loading evidence onto an online portal and by demonstrating good practice at a site visit conducted by an allocated Club Support Officer.
Finally, clubs are required to provide an updated Club Development Plan which is attached to their online club development portal.
Accreditation lasts for 3 years at which point the club will complete a re-accreditation exercise. In the intervening 2 years there is a requirement to complete an annual health check to maintain accreditation.
The club would like to thank Child Welfare Office Emma Crawford for her continuous efforts in helping the club achieve this accreditation
Role of the Club Welfare Officer.
Carmarthen Wanderers Cricket Club is committed to providing an environment that is safe, welcoming and friendly for children and young adults to enjoy the game of cricket.

This includes ensuring all relevant club members and volunteers have an up to date DBS check and codes of conduct are in place for club volunteers, coaches, players and parents.
The Club Welfare Officer is the first point of contact for all Club child safeguarding issues.
