Here at Hucknall and Linby Dolphins, we believe in providing a safe and caring environment for our swimmers develop. We firmly believe that the welfare of children is everyone's responsibility, particularly when it comes to protecting children from abuse. Everyone in the club - club officials, coaches, parents, friends and the children themselves has a duty of care towards all of our young members.

If you have any concerns about the safety of any child in the club or the behaviour of any adults please talk to the club's welfare officer – Louise Gospel who can be contacted on – lougospel@virginmedia.com

Hucknall and Linby Dolphin adheres to Swim England's safeguarding policy 'Wavepower'. You can discuss this with our safeguarding officer, and use the link below:

This is for anyone involved in swimming, adults or children, who believe that the welfare of someone under the age of 18 is at risk. This concern could be neglect, abuse, bullying or fear of someone or anything that is worrying you and you don’t know who to discuss it with.
