Our Club Childrens' Officers are

 

 

All CCOs are Garda Vetted and have completed Safeguarding training in line with Swim Ireland policy.

You can refer to the Swim Ireland Safeguarding Policies at any time for your information.

We have a policy of having 1 male and 1 female CCO so that all of our athletes can feel that there is someone they can approach. The contact details of our CCOs are also published on the Club Noticeboard.

​​NOTE: All correspondence with our Childrens' Officers (by phone or email) is strictly confidential. 

 

Mandated Persons

Note that the CCOs are not 'Mandated Persons' as set out by the Children First Act (2015). The Mandated Person for all Swim Ireland clubs is the National Children's Officer

If you are a Mandated Person on a 24/7 basis, then you are asked to contact the CCO in confidence. We are obliged under the Children First Act to maintain a list of such persons, but this is retained internally and is not published.

Under the current legislation, this would apply to: Members of An Garda Siochana, Foster Parents, and Members of the Clergy.
