Are you looking to bring an abuse claim against a swimming club? Then we are here to help you. We can offer guidance on what is needed and how you can get some form of justice and move forward with your lift.
Dame Kelly Holmes has previously said that she expects survivors of other sports abuse to come forward soon, and the National Association for People Abused in Childhood said that swimming is a sport that has not been dealt with previously.
In recent years there have been a number of swimming coaches who have been convicted for abusing children, and it’s often something that has developed over a period of years that sees the coaches groom the children and manipulate them and their relationship.
The result of child abuse in a swimming club can be long-lasting and cause disruptions in your whole life, including your relationships with other people, the ability to hold down a job, depression and other things too. But we want to help ensure that you get a form of justice brought and your voice is heard. Our trained team is here to help you and ensure that those who failed to protect you as a child are brought to justice.
How do I make an abuse claim against a swimming club?
Firstly you’ll need to find solicitors that you feel comfortable with. Once you’ve done that you’ll have a consultation to discuss the details of your case, details of the abuse aren’t expected at this time. Only when you feel comfortable and in a trusting environment will you be expected to disclose this information.
From here the allegations of abuse will need to be reported to the authorities, as this helps to improve the chances of bringing a successful claim.
From here we’ll take steps in moving forward with the abuse claim, as well as being there for you and any support you might want or need.
How long will the swimming club abuse claim process take?
This might not be what you want to hear, but realistically, claims for abuse can sometimes take a couple of years. However, it’s important to know that we are here for you every step of the way.
