Wavepower 2020-23: Child Safeguarding Policy and Procedures

To help all aquatic settings with child welfare Swim England produce their Wavepower publication. This is their child safeguarding policies and procedures publication.

The aim of Wavepower is to safeguard all children in line with current legislation, regulations and guidance and is for use within any Swim England affiliated organisation where children are present.

Wavepower consistently emphasises that the responsibility for child safeguarding in our sport belongs with all those involved in our sports and is not the sole responsibility of any one person at local, county or national level.

Their document will be updated in 2023, but when updates or changes take place either in Swim England or through statute or governmental guidance these will be published first by Swim England and then on our website.

You can download the fully interactive Wavepower. It is in PDF format.
