Scottish Cycling is fully committed to ensuring that all cyclists, parents, coaches and officials have only positive experiences when participating in the sport.

We are also committed to providing support, training and guidance to our clubs and volunteers within this area.

Scottish Cycling has a Wellbeing and Protection Policy to support the safeguarding of children within our sport; which is complimented by a set of appendix guidance documents that clubs can use.

Scottish Cycling, as part of British Cycling, is a member of the Safeguarding Case management group which supports the management of concerns and the protection of Children and Vulnerable adults in cycling.
