At Littlehampton Swimming Club the welfare of all our swimmers is paramount.

As such we follow the Swim England (ASA) Child Safeguarding Policy Wavepower 2016-19. If you have any cause for concern about the welfare of a child in the club, please talk to the Club Welfare Officer, Head Coach or other Committee Member in their absence.

Our Club Welfare Officer is Sam Grixti

You can contact her with any child welfare concerns via email lscwelfareofficer@gmail.com or find them at the Help Desk on club nights. Alternatively, if you are a worried or concerned swimmer, or you are worried about another swimmer, you can call the ASA/NSPCC Swimline in confidence:
