Welfare Officer

Spencer Swim Club and its training sessions, competitions and social activities are there for every member to enjoy equally. For that to be achieved we all have a responsibility to always treat each other with dignity and respect. 

Swimming has many benefits for our mental and physical health and well-being, and it should be fun and enjoyable. However, there may be times when you feel something isn’t right, for example:

  • Feeling bullied.
  • Feeling pressured to do something you don’t want to do.
  • Inappropriate or unkind messages being sent or shared on social media.
  • Unwanted attention or inappropriate remarks.

If at any point you feel uncomfortable with something at Spencer or believe that codes of conduct are not being properly upheld, please don’t hesitate to contact the Club Welfare Officer who will endeavour to get it resolved.

Our club welfare officer is Sue Swaine.
