support to come forward in the independent review

On 14th December, SportScotland announced details of an independent review into racism in Scottish Cricket. The review team are keen to speak to former players, administrators, umpires, staff and volunteers with experience of racism, and/or particular relevant evidence to support their review. Some we have spoken to have experienced racism but think it’s too small to come forward. Nothing is too small, as it demonstrates trends, which help identify solutions. Racism comes in a number of forms, from direct slurs to differing treatment to others. These testimonies are vital to building a picture of different experiences in Scottish Cricket. Your testimony really does matter. We appreciate for many that coming forward is a big step. We have therefore launched a review support service, with a number of trained advocates who will provide support to those wishing to give evidence during the process. There are a number of options available to those not comfortable with a one to one direct interview, and we can support you to identify the best way for you to come forward to share. If you would like support in this way, please email us at with your contact details, and one of our advocates will call you to discuss your specific disclosure, and what support we can provide during the process. Anything you speak to the advocate about will be confidential and prior to any information being shared with the review we shall seek your consent and support you through that process.
