Cycling Ireland Code of Practice and Safeguarding Procedures for Young and Vulnerable Cyclists

Cycling Ireland is committed to safeguarding the well-being of its members. Every member of Cycling Ireland deserves to be treated, at all times, with respect and dignity. Equally, all members should show respect and understanding for other members’ rights, safety and welfare. They should conduct themselves in a way that reflects the principles of the organisation and guidelines contained in this Code and the Code of Ethics and Good Practice for Children’s Sport as issued jointly by the Irish Sports Council and the Sports Council Northern Ireland.

Cycling Ireland’s first priority is the welfare of young people and vulnerable adults. We are committed to providing an environment which allows members to participate to the best of their ability in a fun and safe environment that is free from bullying and intimidation.

We shall take all practicable steps to protect our members from any form of abuse, from harm, discrimination or degrading treatment and shall respect their rights, wishes and feelings.

Cycling Ireland strives to create an environment that is safe and has the welfare of participants at the forefront.

Cycling Ireland recognises that it has a duty of care, to protect all young people and vulnerable adults and to safeguard their welfare, irrespective of age, disability, gender, racial origin, religious belief and sexual identity.
This Code provides principles and guidelines to be adopted when dealing with young people and

vulnerable adults.

If you have any concerns or queries, please contact the National Safeguarding Officer, Brigid O’Dea.

The role of the National Safeguarding Officer is to protect and promote the welfare of young and vulnerable cyclists and to prevent any risk of harm to our members. However, safeguarding is not just about protecting young and vulnerable cyclists; it is also about safeguarding your club and your volunteers. The more aware you are about how sport can be used to harm vulnerable members, the more vigilant you will be.
