The safeguarding of children, young persons and vulnerable adults using Trust facilities and/or services is of paramount importance.

Formby Pool Trust acknowledges its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of every child, young person or vulnerable adult who has been entrusted to its care and is committed to working to provide a safe environment for all of its members.

Formby Pool Trust acknowledges that every child, young person or vulnerable adult who plays or participates in leisure activities at Formby Pool Trust should be able to take part in an enjoyable and safe environment and be protected from poor practice and abuse. This is the responsibility of every adult involved in our Trust.

All children, young persons and vulnerable adults have a right to be protected from abuse regardless of their age, ethnic origin, gender, special needs, disability, class or social background, religion, sexual orientation, marital status, or political persuasion. All suspicions and allegations of abuse or poor practice will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately


Alerting is the process of informing the designated person that you are aware of, or suspect, that abuse has taken place or that the risk of abuse occurring is high. Everyone that works with vulnerable people has a duty to share concerns even when the vulnerable person has requested that they do not. Alerts MUST be made promptly. Alerts can be made by anyone.

If you have a safeguarding concern please contact the Duty Manager on shift immediately, whom will promptly report to the Trusts designated safeguarding officer. The Trusts designated safeguarding officers are as follow
