SAFEGUARDING AND PROTECTING CHILDREN AND VULNERABLE ADULTS
We take the wellbeing and safeguarding of our members very seriously. We have two British Cycling trained Welfare officers available who work with the Director for Health and Wellbeing to ensure that children and vulnerable adults are safeguarded. They are also available as a first point of contact for other welfare issues.
Further advice is available on the following subjects by clicking the link:
As members of British Cycling, and acknowledging their expertise, we have adopted their safeguarding policies and procedures. They contain all the necessary information of what to do if you have a concern. The policies can be viewed on the British Cycling Website:

UNDER 18'S CYCLING ON CLUB RIDES
We welcome young people on club rides, but as you’d expect there are a few pieces of good practice that we insist are in place.
Should any safeguarding concerns arise they should be raised with either of the Welfare Officers at the earliest opportunity. You may also contact the Director for Health and Wellbeing should the Welfare Officers not be available
