Thank you for taking time to visit Swim Ulster’s Safeguarding section. This section was developed by Swim Ulster in partnership with the NSPCC’s Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU).
Swimming is an every-day activity for many children and makes a significant contribution to their well being and development. All clubs have a duty to promote a positive experience of swimming and safeguard children from abuse within our sport. They also have a role in recognising and responding to concerns that a child may be being harmed within another setting. By encouraging all clubs to implement the Swim Irelands Guidelines for Safeguarding Children 2010 we believe that everyone in swimming will benefit – children, parents/guardians and leaders.
All members should be aware of the SI Safeguarding Children Policies and Procedures
