Speaking out in sport - for parents

Last updated: 07 Oct 2021 Topics: Parents in sport Athlete wellbeing

This animation has been produced as part of our annual Parents in Sport Week campaign to help parents understand their role in keeping children safe in sport. 

We hear Ellie's story, a young athlete who has a negative experience and whose parents aren't sure how to support her.

Through the course of the video, we look at what parents can do to help keep their child safe and who they can turn to for help if something is wrong. 

Can't see the player? You can view this video on the NSPCC YouTube channel.

The CPSU would like to thank Quayle Industries for developing this animation as part of our Parents in Sport Week campaign.
