WYCOMBE DISTRICT SWIMMING CLUB

Safeguarding

The health, safety and well-being of every swimmer is our main concern; our aim is that swimmers will enjoy their time with us. Safeguarding our swimmers is everybody’s responsibility and we want to work in partnership with you to help all swimmers to achieve their full potential. 

To promote a safe environment for swimmers, our selection and recruitment policy follows guidelines set down by Swim England. It includes checks on Coaches', Team Managers' and other volunteers’ suitability including Criminal Records Bureau and reference checks. We provide our volunteers with safeguarding training as recommended by Swim England and provided by UK Sport.

Our designated Welfare Officer, Jancis Shepherd, is responsible for all safeguarding matters within the club and you can find her contact details below. 

A copy of our Child Protection Policy can be found on this link Safeguarding Policy Statement

We have adopted the Swim England safeguarding policies and procedures as laid out in the Wavepower Documentation. This is the framework we will follow in any safeguarding matters. To see more about Wavepower and Swim England's safeguarding procedures and policies please follow the link on the image below.
