Let’s talk about keeping children safe in sport

Parents in Sport Week 2020 takes place 5 – 11 October. Run by the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport
Unit (CPSU), Parents in Sport Week aims to highlight the important role parents play in youth
sport, from helping to keep children safe, to encouraging them to take part and achieve.

As part of the campaign, the CPSU are asking sports parents to make the Sports Parents Promise
a 3-point pledge to their children to listen to them about their concerns, check clubs are safe to
enjoy, and encourage their children to take part in a positive way.

They hope this will help parents to understand how their contribution to their child’s sport makes
it a safer place for all children.

You can help support the CPSU and Parents in Sport Week by making the Sports Parents Promise
on their website, where you can also find a wealth of helpful information about being a great
sports parent and working with parents in sport.

You can also support and follow the campaign on social media using the hashtag #ParentsinSportWeek2020.
