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.
