Safeguarding Policy

Brereton Wheelers Cycling Club believes everyone who participates in cycling in all its disciplines is entitled to participate in an enjoyable and safe environment and to be given the chance to experience the fun, challenge and sense of achievement that are inherent to cycling.

In addition, all young people and vulnerable adults are entitled to a duty of care and to be protected from abuse. Brereton Wheelers Cycling Club is committed to implementing policies and procedures to ensure everyone in the Club accepts their responsibilities to safeguard children and vulnerable adults from harm and abuse. This means taking action to safeguard and report any concerns about their welfare.

As a British Cycling Affiliated Club, we agree to abide by the following British Cycling’s Safeguarding policies.

Welfare Officers

Brereton Wheelers Cycling Club has Welfare Officers who are responsible for ensuring that we meet British Cycling’s requirements and making sure they are communicated to Members, Coaches, Parents, and Children. Our Welfare Officers will also advise Brereton Wheelers Cycling Club Committee on how best to safeguard the welfare of children and vulnerable adults who are participating in Club activities.

If you have any concerns about the welfare of children or vulnerable adults involved in the Club you can contact our Welfare Officers by emailing:

(The role of a Club Welfare Officer is an advisory role and is not intended to replace, even on a temporary basis, the roles and responsibilities of Parents, Guardians, Responsible Adults or Carers. The final decision as to whether an activity or event which involves young people or vulnerable adults receives approval remains at all times with the Committee of the Club.)
