Make the Positive Parents Promise

Last updated: 02 May 2019 Topics: Safeguarding children Working with our partners Type: Campaign

We've launched our Positive Parents Promise as part of our annual awareness raising campaign, Parents in Sport Week.  

This 3-point promise highlights how to be a great sports parent and support your child to ensure they have safe and fun experiences of sport.

What parents can do

Parents can make the Promise to their children by visiting our Positive Parents Promise page. This page includes links to further guidance for parents, from positive sideline behaviour to what makes a safe sports club. 

In return, parents can download a certificate to share their commitment on social media and spread the word using the hashtag #PositiveParentsPromise.

What sports can do

If you’re a sports club, talk to the parents in your sport and encourage them to make the Promise today.

We’d like sports organisations to help us promote the Positive Parents Promise on their social media feeds and their websites.

Launching the Positive Parents Promise ahead of Parents in Sport Week this year allows summer sports to get involved too. If your sport only operates over the summer months, use this time to hold special 'make the promise' events or spread the word at your summer activities.

Please don't forget to let us know via Twitter how you are supporting the campaign.

Support the campaign

We’d love the Promise to reach as many clubs in the UK as possible so they can encourage parents to get involved and share the word across social media using the hashtag #PositiveParentsPromise.
