Dear All,

Swim Wales like many organisations has a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) which is reviewed as part of our annual governance audit every year.

However, COVID-19 has presented all of us with a level of disruption that none of us could truly plan for. The risks and challenges that businesses are facing are constantly evolving. As such, we have been reviewing the position daily to ensure that we have the ability to maintain operations in support of our Members, Volunteers, Participants, Customers and Partners whilst also ensuring the wellbeing of our staff.

Last week we made the difficult decision to Furlough some of our staff in parts of our operation to help secure the short/medium term future of the governing body.

Some impacted areas are;

  • General Office & Administration
  • Events
  • Training & Development
  • Sales & Marketing (Aqua Passport, Merchandising & Badges & Certificates)
  • Governance
  • Safeguarding
  • Finance (Administration)

Please be assured that work in all of these areas still continues with a reduced number of staff in place for high level support and planning for Return to Operations (RTO)

It is important to note that we have maintained staffing levels in both Performance, Club support and aquatic partner liaison. Welfare/Safeguarding, Finance & Funding support and non-pool training and activity support will be taking priority.

Swim Wales are confident that our Business Continuity Plans will enable us to maintain a high level of service and support for you our Members, Volunteers, Participants, Customers and Partners.

If you have any questions or would like to know more about our BCP, then please contact Simon Clarke our Head of Aquatic Operations at simon.clarke@swimming.org

Keep staying safe and speak soon,

Fergus Feeney

CEO Swim Wales
