Welfare Contacts

The Welfare & Safeguarding within our club is considered as everyone’s responsibility and as such we aim to create the safest environment within which every swimmer has the chance to achieve their goals.

We will ensure that all members of the club are listened too & that appropriate action is taken.

We’re striving to form working relationships between parents, swimmers & volunteers.

Our aim is to resolve any issues & maintain our family friendly club atmosphere.

Our welfare policies aim to ensure that:

  • All swimmers are safe & protected from harm
  • All swimmers feel safe & healthy
  • Swimmers, Coaches, Parents & Volunteers are aware of the expected behaviour as set out in our Code of Conducts.
