SAFEGUARDING  

Swim England produced the Wavepower publication (child safeguarding and procedures), to help clubs with child welfare. Wavepower must be adopted by all Swim England affiliated clubs and organisations. Ensuring child safety is a key part of how our club operates. We provide a safe, happy and fun environment where children can learn to swim and develop their skills. The responsibility to safeguard children belongs to everyone who plays a part in delivering our sporting activities. Wavepower offers practical guidance and information on mandatory requirements and good practice for anyone involved.

Click on the Wave Power logo to go to the Swim England web site for their most up to date guidance documents & procedures with regards to safeguarding and child protection.

If you have any safeguarding/child welfare issues to report, please contact Chantal Wilson at chantalwilson22@yahoo.co.uk

Please also contact Chantal if you wish to volunteer to help the club so a DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service) application can be made. This is a requirement when working with children.

If you wish to report an incident or concern, download and complete an incident form and return to the Welfare Officer within 7 days.
