From CA Chair Dr Lachlan Henderson:
“Historical child sex abuse is an appalling issue that society and many sports including cricket are grappling with.
“We can’t change what happened but we need to do what we can to assist victims.
”On behalf of CA I want to apologise to anyone who has suffered sexual abuse while involved in Australian Cricket.
“We are encouraging all states and territories to join the National Redress Scheme and the CA board is currently exploring other ways that Australian Cricket can further help victims of abuse.
“While we now have a rigorous set of policies and procedures around child safety, we need to ensure we are supporting anyone who has experienced past abuse as best we can.”
