The London Cycling Campaign takes the issue of Safeguarding very seriously. We have developed policy and guidance which everyone running activities on behalf of the charity is expected to read and ahere to, so that we remain an open, welcoming and inclusive organisation whilst still meeting our obligations to protect children and vulnerable adults.
Our full Safeguarding Policy & Guidance may be read and downloaded here.
LCC local groups should note that they may only allow people under the age of 18 to participate in their activities (such as group meetings and led rides) if they are accompanied by a parent, legal guardian or other person with equivalent responsibility for them such as a teacher or youth worker. Groups may only allow vulnerable adults to participate in these activities if they are accompanied by a carer or support worker to assist with their everyday needs. If you are an officer of an LCC local group please make sure your group adheres to all relevant sections of the above policy and guidance.
New procedures and forms to assist LCC local groups to run their activities in compliance with this policy and guidances are currently in development and will be posted on this website soon.
