Member Protection Information Officers Role in our Club.

Member Protection Information Officers play an important role in sport

They are the first point of call in the club for enquiries, concerns or complaints about harassment or abuse

Provide confidential information and moral support to the person with the concern or who is alleging harassment.


At SWU we would like to ensure that our club is welcoming, inclusive and safe for all our members.

We follow a set of Codes of Conduct that we  consider to be an acceptable standard
of behaviour and conduct for all club members and our guests to adhere to
They provide a guide to the expectations required by our club.
We encourage every member to read and abide by these codes and
 commit to an ethical and moral behaviour standard.

The Club  Codes of Conduct are listed under Informaion on our website.
