Taw Velo takes its duty of care for our junior and juvenile members extremely seriously. Activities for young riders should be fun, safe, and take place in a supportive club environment.
Every child shall be treated as an individual and every attempt made to cater to their differing physical abilities and emotional needs.
If you have any concerns about any members, officials, coaches or any other persons who you come across as a result of the club’s activities, and feel you cannot approach the person concerned you must contact the Club Welfare Officer or any other official or coach in the club. Choose someone you trust. This applies to even if the concern seems minor and trivial.
In the unlikely event of any problem, please contact our Welfare Officer, Ali, on 01271 375704 or at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your problem.
We operate under the umbrella of British Cycling and full details of their welfare policies can be found at www.britishcycling.org.uk/safeguarding
