Report a concern7 August 2019
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.
Referring a concern can be done via your Club, County or Regional Welfare Officer. Swim England has a Coach Referral Protocol where concerns regarding coaching techniques can be raised.
If you have any concerns please fill out the online referral form below.
If you prefer, our Safeguarding team can be contacted on 01509 640700 (Option 1 for Swim England and then Option 3 for Safeguarding). Please leave a message if the team is unavailable and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
The team will assess the information provided and take appropriate action.
If the concern is urgent and about a child at risk, and you cannot contact your Welfare Officer or the Swim England safeguarding team, you can call the NSPCC on 0808 800 5000.
If it is an emergency because a child or adult is at immediate risk, then call the police or children’s social care (if appropriate) in your area.
If a child or adult is in immediate danger contact the police on 999. For non-emergencies 101.
