What is a Group Admin?
Bluetit Group Admins are a key part of The Bluetits network, each area which has a Bluetit group is started and managed by the admin. The group admin role includes:
- Managing the Facebook group page.
- Liaising with The Bluetits HQ about all Bluetit matters, swims, badges and events.
- Abiding by and sharing The Bluetits values at all times.

Our Values; Fun, Trust & Inclusivity
We have a saying on a swim – ‘What happens in the water, stays in the water’. If someone lets rip about their partner leaving the washing up this morning, or needs a good cry because the world is getting them down, there is an understanding that it remains within the circle of trust. This unwritten rule has been with us since the start, and that basis of trust remains in every relationship and bond within the Bluetits. We are about more than swimming. We are a group of friends that spans continents.
We expect you to manage your group with compassion, trust that we are all swimming in the same direction and sharing the fun side of life with a sense of shared adventure. Practically you will need a high level of literacy and be happy working on Facebook. (If you’re not, we suggest finding a co-admin who is!) A love of people and badges will also come in handy!
We invite you to commit only the time that you can happily give and only if it makes you happy and you are having fun. The Bluetits is all about the shared experience and fun, if it ain’t fun, life is too short and there’s always something else to do!
Issues or Concerns
Please, if you have ANY issues or concerns with your page, the
technicalities of Facebook, a member of your group, or need advice or
information on any aspect of Bluetit activities please either seek the support of your fellow admins within Top Tits or get in touch with us at HQ. We are part time but do our absolute best to respond quickly. We consider our volunteers part of The Bluetits team and family, and are here to support you accordingly!
The Bluetits Chill Swimmers is a wholly inclusive organisation and we
welcome everyone to come and have fun with us. We strongly encourage inclusivity within the groups, and if you feel that this might be a problem please speak to us openly and honestly if you need support with this.
Often on our swims we share personal stories and information. As Trust is one of our core values, we ask all members to treat personal information confidentially and with compassion. The copyright of any documents or work created by individuals who are volunteering with The Bluetits will be deemed to belong to the organisation. All information discussed as part of a volunteer admin role must be classed as confidential; volunteers must work in compliance with data protection and agreeing to the volunteer agreement means you agree to this.
