If you are one of our young members who feel you need to talk to someone outside of your club, organisation or family, then Childline are available 24/7 on 0800 1111

You can contact them about anything. Whatever your worry is. It's better out than in.

They are there to support you, listen to you and help you find ways to cope.

You are never alone

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 club members volunteering in a regulated activity role are DBS checked.
