As part of our players’ health and welfare, Burwood Cricket Club (BCC) has developed a program for our members who may need additional support. The health and welfare of all our players is our priority, and the Club is committed to providing support to our members on and off the field.
We all experience challenging emotional issues at different times. We can’t always deal with these on our own. If a club member is experiencing disruptions to their mental health, the BCC Player Wellbeing Program is in place to provide some additional support. We have appointed 4 Player Welfare Managers (PWMs) who are available to discuss any challenges players might be facing. All discussions with our PWMs will be confidential. This connection may take many forms with the main role of the PWM being to provide non-judgmental support, offering guidance and a path forward to help improve the wellbeing of our members.

We have a male and a female Child Safety Officer at the Club. These people are available to have a confidential discussion with any member who feels they may need some additional support and help. The Child Safety Officers will direct the member to the appropriate resources with the aim to make them feel safe and supported whilst at the Club.
