CTC Cambridge

Welfare officer

In keeping with national Cycling UK/CTC Guidance every local Cycling UK/CTC affiliated branch should appoint a Welfare Officer at their Annual General Meeting. The appointed Officer should be familiar with the national guidance on the CTC Safeguarding Procedure [2015] and the Procedure for the reporting of Complaints.

The duties of the Welfare Officer include:

  • Help members address and resolve complaints against another individual member(s). For example when an allegation is made of sexual harassment or other inappropriate behaviour on an organised ride.
  • Intervene to support individual members in accordance with the CTC/Cycling UK Safeguarding Policy, particularly in relation to vulnerable adult members or members under 18 years.
  • In accordance with national policy, report any unresolved or serious issues to the Committee of Cambridge CTC/Cycling UK who may advise on subsequent actions including whether the matter should be referred to the CTC/Cycling UK Council.
  • Ensure compliance with Cambridge CTC/UK Cycling local policy in relation to riders who are under the age of 18 years.
  • Ensure compliance with the CTC/Cycling UK's Complaints, Disputes and Disciplinary Procedure when dealing with any informal or formal complaints.

The Welfare Officer can be contacted informally in the first instance. All complaints will be conducted in a discrete way with strict adherence to the principles of respect for privacy and data protection. The Welfare Officer may exercise his/her discretion to refer more serious issues to the Committee in keeping with national CTC/UK Cycling Policy.

The welfare officer is Peter Wilson. Email: welfare@ctc-cambridge.org.uk.
