MASC Cares

It has been a very difficult time of late with lockdown and many changes to the normal way of life. Here at Musselburgh we care about our everyone’s wellbeing (physically, mentally and emotionally) including our swimmers, coaches, parents and volunteers. We understand that your wellbeing may have changed throughout this time and that you may be feeling more anxious, stressed or have experienced a loss of a loved one. It is to this end that we have trained some of our coaches in Mental Health Awareness, so they are on hand to help. 

 The trained coaches (point of contacts) are Danny and Jonathan. 

If you feel like you need to speak to our coaches please don’t hesitate to approach them – alternatively you can contact our Wellbeing Protection Officers (Gill & Karen) on mascwelfareprotectionofficer@gmail.com.

If you feel like you can’t speak to these contacts, then we have listed some other support services that are on offer that can help you or your child:

DISCLAIMER:

We want you to feel safe when you talk to us. We need to make sure that you know that we can’t always keep things confidential – however we will only share what you tell us with someone if:

  • you ask us to get you help because you can’t do this yourself
  • we believe someone else is at risk of serious harm
  • you are under 18 and we think you are at risk of serious harm
  • you are over 18 and have told us your name and where you are, and we think you are at risk of serious harm.
