Welfare and Safeguarding is everyone’s concern and responsibility and applies consistently and without exemption across our membership, at all levels.

Our Safeguarding Statement 

“Our organisation acknowledges the duty of care to safeguard, protect and promote the welfare of children and adults across all of our sports and activities. 

We are committed to ensuring safeguarding practice reflects statutory responsibilities, government guidance and complies with best practice and Swim England’s policies and requirements”. 

Reporting a Concern

Anyone who has a concern that a child or adult may be at risk of harm, or being harmed, should refer to our safeguarding team. 

The team is staffed by individuals who are experienced in dealing with these concerns and have undergone specific training for those who have a designated role in safeguarding within sports. 

If you have any concerns, please fill out the relevant online referral form below. Please note there is one for children and a separate one for adults.
