Putteridge Swimming Club Welfare Information

Putteridge Swimming Club is committed to providing a friendly, caring and safe environment for all its members. We believe that all our members should enjoy swimming in an environment free from the fear of discrimination, intimidation, harassment, bullying and abuse. If there is something that you are unhappy or worried about please tell our welfare officer Ian Dickson, your coach or an adult that you can trust.

We have implemented policies and procedures to safeguard the well being of both children and adults, in order to protect them from abuse of any kind. The club has adopted the ASA’s ‘Wavepower 2009/2011 policies and procedures’, and these provide the foundations of our Welfare Policy.

We endeavor to make sure that these policies and procedures are known and are adopted by everyone involved with the club – swimmers, coaches, committee members, parents, guardians and club volunteers.

In the event of the club’s policy being breached the club’s Welfare Officer will act and investigate any incident in line with the recommended policy and will implement any necessary disciplinary and appeals procedures. This will be done quickly and with full confidentiality.
