Could you be one of our Club Welfare Officers?

We need your help! We are fortunate to have Hilary Johnson, a long standing member of our Masters squad and parent of a former member in our junior competitive programme, as an excellent Club Welfare Officer.  Hilary will be standing again for the position at this year’s AGM.  However, we are members of a very large club and it would be a great support both to her and to the Club if we could find another volunteer Club Welfare Officer to share the responsibilities of this vital role. 

The ASA, our governing body, encourages larger clubs to have more than one Welfare Officer and suggests one male and one female officer would be helpful, though not essential.

Our club’s most valuable asset is the swimmers and key to their safety and well-being is the role of Club Welfare Officer. The Welfare Officer is the first point of contact if there are ever issues concerning child welfare, poor practice or potential abuse. The Welfare Officer would provide input in the operation of the club with an eye toward child safety. There’s some training required and an enhanced DBS check. 

This is not a role for which the club can hire. The Welfare Officer must be a club member and cannot be related either to an employee or to a member of the committee.   However, you will, of course, have the support of the committee and staff in carrying out your role, and crucially you will be able to work with Hilary who is already experienced in the role.

If you are interested and/or would like further information about this role, please feel free to contact our current welfare office, Hilary, at [email protected]
