Club Welfare

Club Welfare Officers play a key role in maintaining British Cycling’s high standards in relation to vulnerable groups participating in cycling; allowing peace of mind for participants, their families and Cycling Clubs by ensuring that everyone working with young people and vulnerable adults are suitable to do so.

The main aim of the role is to promote safeguarding within the Club, working with others to ensure that a safe and inclusive environment is achieved.
