The ECB is committed to ensuring cricket is a game for everyone by breaking down barriers and ensuring that cricket is a truly inclusive and diverse sport.


Following the launch of Raising the Game, a number of tools and resources have been made available on the ECB’s EDI Content Hub.

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)

Everyone has a part to play in raising the game and tackling discrimination and inequality within cricket.

One of the e-learning modules is designed to help everyone in the recreational game understand the 9 protected characteristics set out in the UK Equality Act 2010.


This short course is open to all across the recreational game and takes around 30mins to complete.
