Parents in Sport Week

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. You can also find a wealth of helpful information about being a great sports parent and working with parents in sport here.

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