New toolkit to help Swim England clubs get through coronavirus outbreak9 April 2020
Swim England has created a new COVID-19 Club Support Toolkit to help its affiliated clubs get through the coronavirus pandemic.
The guidance includes a series of case studies on how other clubs have coped, advice on funding opportunities plus information for any employees or self-employed workers.
There is also a handy budget planner to allow clubs to work out their financial position during the coming months.
Jon Keating, Swim England Club Development Director, said the toolkit had been created following a request from clubs for more guidance and support.
He said: “We’re aware that this is a difficult period for our clubs as pools are shut indefinitely and members have nowhere to train, apart from at home.
“It’s important that our clubs know we are still here to support them and we’ve been listening to their concerns.
“There are a number of resources available and we’ve compiled them all together in this toolkit and we hope clubs find the information useful in these challenging times.
“We want to see all our affiliated clubs able to return to the water when that time arises and continue to provide the excellent service they offer to members.”
A series of frequently asked questions about the coronavirus outbreak compiled by Swim England is also available.
