Safeguarding at SLSGB Events
As the planning for our 2016 events is well under way, we are looking at our safeguarding provision for all our nipper, youth and open events.   If you will be attending any of the pool or ocean events this year and you have a safeguarding qualification or have a safeguarding background, please contact Lou Johnson, National Safeguarding Manager, safeguarding@slsgb.org.uk

NSPCC Standards
As many of you will be aware, SLSGB are working towards achieving the NSPCC standards in safeguarding.  The preliminary standards were submitted last year and SLSGB have been informed that we have passed the first round of standards.  Lou Johnson and the team will be working towards the intermediate standards this year.
