Welfare & Safeguarding

Welfare and safeguarding within our club are considered everyone’s responsibility. We aim to create the safest environment within which every swimmer has the chance to achieve their goals.

We will ensure all club members are listened to, and that appropriate action is taken.

We’ve formed working relationships between parents/carers, swimmers, and volunteers. We aim to continue this, resolve any issues and maintain our family-friendly club atmosphere.

Our welfare policies aim to ensure that:

  • All swimmers are safe and protected from harm
  • All swimmers feel safe and healthy
  • Swimmers, coaches, parents/carers and volunteers are aware of the expected behaviour as set out in our Code of Conducts

With this in mind if you are concerned about a swimmer or worried or stressed and need to talk to someone please speak to your coach or welfare officer, [email protected] or you could also contact the NSPCC or Somerset Direct at 0300 123 2224
