We’d like to welcome Amy Jones to the committee and wish her all the best in her new role as Club Welfare Officer .
The role of welfare officer is to ensure that all children, young people and vulnerable adults, are able to enjoy triathlon in a fun and safe environment. Amy will be the first point of contact should you have any concerns about our younger members, and will deal respectfully with any representations you wish to make.
Thank you for welcoming me as the Welfare Officer for Celtic Tri.
A little bit about me; I have been a member of Celtic Tri since 2018. Having been an avid follower of the sport for many years I took the leap to participate myself and found the welcoming and truly inclusive ethos of the club fantastic. I love to compete in sprint distance triathlon due to the exciting fast paced nature of the race!
I am a secondary school teacher by day so have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of safeguarding expectations. I have also recently participated in the British Triathlon ‘Time to Listen Safeguarding Training’ to ensure my knowledge is up to date in relation to the triathlon club Welfare Officer role.
My aim is to support the club in ensuring that all members have a safe, supportive and pressure free environment to develop as triathletes and provide a point of contact for any concerns. Welfare covers a range of areas including; safeguarding and protecting children and adults, anti-bullying, and equality.
It is the responsibility of all members to ensure that all other members are able to participate in a safe worry-free environment.
Members should never feel worried to report or raise any concerns they have.
