Wavepower 2020-23: Child safeguarding policy and procedures for clubs.

​To help clubs with child welfare Swim England has produced the Wavepower publication. This is the child safeguarding policies and procedures publication for Swimming. 

Ensuring child safety should be a key part of how clubs operate. It helps to provide a safe, happy and fun environment where children can learn to swim and develop their skills. The responsibility to safeguard children does not belong to any one person. Instead it belongs to everyone who plays a part in delivering sporting activities. Wavepower is intended for anyone involved in these activities and offers practical guidance and information on mandatory requirements and good practice.

This publication is constantly being updated. If any new guidance or policy changes are released prior to this, then the Wavepower pages will be updated or added on the Swim England website.
