I’m Katie Macdonald, and I am the Welfare Officer for Reading Swimming Club. I have two main responsibilities. The first is largely admin related and sees me completing DBS checks and ensuring all the people around our swimmers have up to date safeguarding training, and taking the responsibility of signing this off for Swim Mark each year. The other role is largely pastoral. I am a point of contact for issues relating to the wellbeing of Club members, with the aim of fostering positive experiences and relationships within the club. I am the person with primary responsibility for managing and reporting concerns about children or adults at risk. I can be contacted by email welfareofficer@readingswimclub.org
