Welcome to the Safeguarding area of SLSA Wales

Everyone who participates within Surf Life Saving Association of Wales (SLSAW) is entitled to do so in an enjoyable and safe environment. SLSAW and member clubs have a moral and legal obligation to ensure that, when given responsibility for children, coaches, members and volunteers provide them with the highest possible standard of care.

Each club should have a Safeguarding Officer (SO) and these should be your first point of contact should you have any concerns about the welfare of a child. The SO is a key part of any clubs personnel, they ensure that safeguarding policies and procedures are followed and that club members and members  volunteering in a regulated activity role are DBS checked and adhere to the safeguarding principles..
