The well-being of our swimmers is at the heart of our club. All parents, carers and Club Volunteers have an active role in preventing bullying and supporting our young people. We are committed to having a safe environment for anyone to be able to talk about their feelings and problems and to provide support.

We ask all our swimmers to adher to the Athlete Code of Conduct. Please take time to read this with your swimmer(s) and we encourage you and them to highlight any concerns you may have at any time. The club's Athlete Code of Conduct is signed annually at membership renewal time by each swimmer.

For mental health issues, please feel free to access the resources available below yourself, or signpost other members to them as necessary.

The club also has a Complaints Procedure Policy so you are informed how we will deal with any bullying issues.

Please don't hesitate to contact our Wellbeing and Child Protection Officer, Nicola Andrews, should you have any concerns at any time. Only our Wellbeing/Child Protection Officer has access to the following email, so please send any concerns to: [email protected].
