Safeguarding

Dear Mitre members, 

As an affiliated member of British Cycling, BMCC are required to appoint a Club Welfare Office (CWO), to support members in ensuring that all children, young people and adults at risk have a fun, safe and positive experience as members of our club. All adults should contribute to the club meeting its overall duty of care and be aware of our club’s safeguarding procedures.

We ask that members familiarise themselves with the attached BMCC Safeguarding Policy, the key issues of which include:

·      Permissions for photography, videoing and the sharing of images of junior members on mobile phones or social media

·      Contacting young people without parental consent

·      Shared changing rooms

·      Offers of lifts/travel to events

·      Anti-bullying

Additional policy covering the use of virtual reality training applications.

If you are concerned about the behaviour of an adult towards a young or vulnerable person at the club, or something that has happened to them outside the club, please contact the CWO. It is not your responsibility to investigate such concerns further, but you should act on your concerns by passing the information (GDPR: please do not use full names for initial contact) to the BMCC Club Welfare Officer, who will follow the club’s safeguarding procedures.

Club Welfare Office name:     Suzanne Romney

Email Address:                           safeguarding@brightonmitre.co.uk

The BMCC Safeguarding Policy has been ratified by the BMCC Committee and will be adopted into the club’s constitution at the AGM on 26/2/2020.
