It is very important that everyone participating in our sport
does all they can to ensure the welfare of children and young
people in clubs
All Swim Wales affiliated clubs and organisations should adopt
and implement the Policies and Procedures contained in this manual
folder. It contains mandatory requirements, practical information
and good practice guidance all in one place.
It is to be used by club officers, club members, parents,
children and all those who work with young members so that everyone
involved in the sport can play their part in safeguarding children

Need to talk?
Contact ChildLine anytime - calls are free and confidential.
We always want to keep your contact with ChildLine confidential,
but if we werevery worried about your safety or the safety of other
peoplewe will talk to you about whether other people need to
We will only tell someone if we feel it's an emergency and we
will talk to you about this first.
We want to keep you safe. However, we also understand the sort of
situations you might be in. If we do need to tell somebody, we'll
try and give you as much control over what happens as possible. The
last thing we want is to make things worse for you.
You say you might need to tell someone if you're very worried
about me or someone else. What does this mean?
You can talk to ChildLine about anything that is important to
you, no matter how big or small it might feel.
However there are some things that we think are too serious to
keep between you and ChildLine.
We may want to tell someone else if:
- We think your life or someone else's life is in immediate
- You are being hurt by someone who has a position of trust and
works with other children e.g. a teacher or policeman.
- You've told us that you have been hurting another person which
makes us worried about their safety.
In these cases we will talk to you about whether other people
need to know what's happening.
