Welfare

Leeds & Bradford Triathlon Club recognise that the welfare and wellbeing of young and vulnerable adults is paramount and that every member has the right to be protected from abuse. This is why LBT are following the British Triathlon Federation’s guidance on Safeguarding.

If you have any concerns about the welfare of a club member or suspect abuse is taking place please contact our Welfare Officer in person or by emailing welfare.officer@lbt.org.uk

  • Facilitate the process of DBS checks when required.
  • Receive, record and forward to the Lead Officer of your Home Nation any concerns that are expressed to you.
