The safeguarding of vulnerable adults and children can seem complicated to many cycling groups, who may worry about potential liability. CTC's safeguarding policies aim to simplify the process and encourage a greater diversity in the kinds of people taking part in recreational cycling activities.
These guidelines were created with input from CTC in 2003. They have since been updated by British Cycling with input from British Rowing and be found at: https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/safeguarding
CTC is fully committed to the principles of equality of opportunity and is responsible for ensuring that no job applicant, councillor, employee, volunteer or member receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of the ‘protected characteristics’ under the Equality Act 2010.
Although the final level of responsibility for ensuring health and safety at work lies with the Chief Executive and each and every individual employee, certain members of management and staff have specific responsibilities to ensure that CTC’s health and safety policy is maintained at all times.
