Wavepower 2020-23: Child safeguarding policy and procedures for clubs

To help clubs with child welfare we produce our Wavepower publication. This is our child safeguarding policies and procedures publication.

Wavepower must be adopted by all Swim England affiliated clubs and organisations. The latest version and can be viewed below.

The aim of Wavepower is to safeguard all children in line with current legislation, regulations and guidance and is for use within any Swim England affiliated organisation where children are present.

Wavepower consistently emphasises that the responsibility for child safeguarding in our sport belongs with all those involved in our sports and is not the sole responsibility of any one person at local, county or national level.

This document will be updated in 2023, but when updates or changes take place either in Swim England or through statute or governmental guidance these will be published on the website.

You can download the fully interactive Wavepower. It is in PDF format. Alternatively, you can read it online. If it doesn’t load after a few seconds please refresh the page.
