Child Protection and Welfare

Eastleigh Swim Club believes that the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility, particularly when it comes to protecting children from abuse. Everyone in swimming – administrator, club official, coach, parent, friend, children themselves, anyone – can help.

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.
