The Foundation is committed to improving representation and breaking down the barriers which currently exist within the game. In addition to our national Hubs programme, we are excited to have launched an ambitious London-wide action plan to make cricket a game for all.
Our plan aims to improve representation at all levels of the game, spanning grassroots, talent, and the coaching workforce. Initiatives include:
- Supporting forty coaches from under-represented backgrounds to obtain a L1 or L2 coaching qualification
- Funding a mentor to provide additional support to ensure none of our beneficiaries slip through the cracks
- Opening access to cricket and Lord’s by hosting Open House days for children from local state-schools
- Running specialist training led by inspiring role models to empower more young people from under-represented backgrounds to progress into county age groups squads
We are determined to make a real and lasting difference and will be working closely with key partners including ACE, MCC, the ECB, the NACC, and the Refugee Cricket Project to maximise our impact.
