County director Kelly Anderson says: "I am delighted to welcome our partnership with Kidscape. Working with young fans and their families is what I enjoy most and to be able to support them when dealing with a situation like this is invaluable.

"I too have attended a ZAP Community Workshop with my daughter and the strategies and support that we were given means that I now have an assertive and resilient child who can deal with anything. I felt empowered as a parent during what was an isolating and frustrating time and above anything – supported to achieve a positive outcome for my daughter. With Josh on board too as an Ambassador for Kidscape, I am delighted that we can support them from a whole club approach to help to protect more young lives."

Operational chairman Gavin Foxall says: "I am delighted that we are partnering with Kidscape. As a community-owned club it is important we engage with charities who play an important role in society. Kidscape are a great fit and we look forward to working with them closely."
