Welfare

We love dancing and everything associated with swing dance and want everyone to feel absolutely comfortable and safe at any of our events.

To aid this we have a dedicated welfare officer and a Welfare Code of Conduct.

We recommend that everyone read the Code as it sets out expectations and friendly etiquette advice for participants and teachers. It also fully details how to seek help if there is a problem and how we will address issues.

If have a welfare concern, please contact:

welfare.swingtyne@gmail.com

or use our welfare web form opposite which permits anonymous submissions.

The Welfare Officer has been mandated by the Committee to investigate complaints in confidence and independently of the Committee, if the complainant desires. Only the Welfare Officer monitors the welfare email account.

If you wish for the whole Committee to be aware of an issue please contact:

dancing@swingtyne.com

No concern should be considered too small to raise. Swing Tyne and the Welfare Officer are committed to providing a safe space for all dancers.
