Club Welfare

South Wales Orienteering Club is committed to ensuring that everyone, including children and at-risk adults, who participate in orienteering have a positive and enjoyable experience in what can be a challenging environment. Events are organised to maximise safety and minimise all types of risk.

South Wales Orienteering Club is dedicated to promoting orienteering for all, recognising inequalities and taking steps to address them to ensure that it becomes equally accessible to everyone in society. SWOC believes that everyone is entitled to be treated fairly regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, parental or marital status, race, religion, ethnic or national origins or socioeconomic background.

Orienteering has a great deal to offer people with disabilities. Many can, and already participate with little need for activities and events to be modified, although we recognise that people with some forms of disability will benefit from thought being given to how activities can be modified to enhance their experience of orienteering. If you are thinking of joining us and have any additional needs please contact the club welfare officer at welfare @
