The NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) has launched the Sports Parents Promise as part of its annual awareness raising campaign, Parents in Sport Week, 7-13 October 2019.
The Promise outlines all the ways in which parents can be the best sports parents they can be, by ensuring their child has safe and enjoyable experiences of sport.
Parents can make the Promise online and, in return, they’ll be directed to vital information about how to keep their child safe in sport. They can also download a certificate of their own to share on social media or print out and stick up on the fridge.
Show your child you support them taking part in sport by making the Promise at thecpsu.org.uk/parentspromise and spread the word using the hashtag #SportsParents. If you’re a sports club, talk to parents in your sport and encourage them to make the Promise today.
The NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU) was set up in 2001 to help embed safeguarding best practice and policy across the sports sector.
The CPSU works with national governing bodies and active partnerships (previously county sports partnerships) to enable them to effectively protect the young people they work with from abuse and harm. For more information on the CPSU, please visit thecpsu.org.uk
