Child protection and safeguarding
As a Swim England affiliated club we have adopted the Wavepower guidance in full as our child protection and safeguarding policy. You can find this here. Our welfare officer is Cathryn Mellersh, who can be contacted via email@example.com.
If you’re a club member and you want to raise a concern, you can speak to any adult involved in the club whom you trust, and your concern will be dealt with. If you don’t feel able to talk to someone, sometimes it’s easier to write things down and pass on a note. There’s a leaflet here that you can print off, that gives some ideas for what you can do, and a form that you can use if you like: Child Power Leaflet
