Parents in Sports Week


Parents in Sport Week takes place from 4 to 10 October 2021.

Parents in Sport Week is a national awareness raising campaign run by the NSPCC. It aims to highlight the important role parents play in the bigger safeguarding picture of sport.

Through their work with sports, the NSPCC understand that whether it’s spotting the signs of abuse, or speaking out if something is wrong, parents can make a huge difference when it comes to making sport a safer place for all children.

However, to be able to support their child, parents need knowledge. That’s why this year’s campaign is focused on getting the right information and resources to parents, so that they can play their part and keep their child safe in sport.

New resources for 2021

As part of this year's campaign, the NSPCC will be launching several new resources for parents to help skill them up on keeping their child safe in sport, these include:

  • a new animation for parents on what abuse might look like in sport and how to get help
  • a short, interactive e-learning course for parents on how to keep children safe
  • a new look parents' hub on the CPSU website, which parents can use as a one-stop-shop for safeguarding information
