Posted 11th September 2023

Keeping Your Child Safe in Sport focus week is now just a few weeks away.

The focus for 2023

This year, the Keeping Your Child Safe in Sport campaign will focus on the following 3 areas:

Getting involved

Parents and carers play an important role in influencing their child’s enjoyment and experience of sport through their feedback, actions and support. Not all children need the same involvement from their parents or carers. What involvement would they like you to have and how can you get involved in their sporting journey?

Being supportive

Sport can be an emotional experience for children, their adults, and coaches. Feedback from parents and carers greatly influences how a child perceives their ability, enjoys their sport, and feels motivated to continue participating.

Keeping children safe

It’s important that parents and carers feel confident to raise any worries or concerns they may have at their child’s sports club or activity. Asking questions about safeguarding policies and procedures should also be commonplace. We have resources to help equip you with this knowledge.

A media toolkit for promoting the campaign has been shared.

You can access the toolkit and download all of the assets here: https://thecpsu.org.uk/upcoming-events/2023-10-02-keeping-your-child-safe-in-sport-week/

This toolkit is designed for comms and digital teams and you can tag @TheCPSU and @NSPCC in any activity on social media with the hashtag #SafeinSport.

If you have any questions about the campaign or getting involved, please email cpsu@nspcc.org.uk.
