The ASA operates a free and confidential helpline called SWIMLINE 0808 100 4001
This service is provided for anyone involved in swimming, including children and young people who believe that the welfare of a child is at risk.
This could be neglect or abuse, bullying or fear of someone, or anything that is worrying you and you don’t know who to discuss this with.
If you require help with a problem or dispute at a club in England, there are a number of options available to resolve issues within a Swim England club. See here.
Swimline is only available during working hours but if you leave a message they will call you back on the next working day.
The NSPCC Child protection line is available 24 hours. Call them on 0808 800 5000 Calls are free and confidential.
