Club Welfare, Safeguarding and Child Protection

Cycling should be a safe and positive experience for everybody. All those involved in the sport have a part to play in safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk. To assist with this, British Cycling will offer support and guidance, reflective of good practice, to all our members.

One of the most important ways to protect and safeguard children and adults at risk is to report any concerns. It’s important that you can talk to someone if you are worried or upset. This may be your parent/carer, a teacher or your club welfare officer.

The following are all points of confidential contact:

British Cycling Tel: 0161 274 2082

If that isn’t someone you feel that you can talk to, you can call Childline 0800 1111 or contact them via www.childline.org.uk
