Wellingborough Amateur Swimming Club
Internal Enquiries and Suspensions
• The Club will make an immediate decision about whether any individual accused of abuse should be temporarily suspended pending further police and social services enquiries.
• Irrespective of the findings of the social services or police enquiries the Club Disciplinary
Committee will assess all individual cases to decide whether a member of staff or volunteer can
be reinstated and how this can be sensitively handled. This may be a difficult decision; particularly where there is insufficient evidence to uphold any action by the police. In such cases the Club Disciplinary Committee must reach a decision based upon the available information which could suggest that on a balance of probability, it is more likely than not that the allegation is true. The welfare of the child should always remain paramount.
