Portsmouth Northsea Swimming Club is committed to protecting children from violence, exploitation, abuse and neglect. 

The welfare of children is the responsibility of everyone involved with the swimming club – whether a committee member, a club official, a coach, parent, friend and the children themselves.   

If you have any concerns about the safety of any child in the Club or the behaviour of any adults please talk to Marc Fry our Club Welfare Officer ([email protected]).
