Raising Concerns

SWIMLINEIf you have any concerns about the safety of any child in the club or the behaviour of any adults please talk to the club’s welfare officer, who can be contacted via the Club Office.

Alternatively, you can call the ASA’s SwimLine on 0808 100 4001. The service is provided for anyone involved in swimming, including children and young people who believe that the welfare of a young child is at risk. This could be neglect or abuse, bullying or fear of someone, or anything that is worrying you and you don’t know who to discuss it with.
