Our focus for 2024

This year we would like sports clubs and activity providers to host an event alongside parents, carers and children in your sport or activity. The aim is to bring your sporting community together, share knowledge and information about safeguarding in your club or activity, and get to know each other.

Getting involved

In the coming months we will be sharing an event toolkit to help you plan and promote your event but in the meantime you may want to start thinking about the type of event to would like to hold 

You could bring your sporting community together by hosting parents’ evenings, BBQ’s, sports day style events where parents have a go at their child’s sport. It’s your opportunity to get creative and get everyone in the sporting community involved.

Stay up to date

Keep an eye on our website and our socials over the next couple of months where we will be sharing resources to support you in your event planning.  Follow us on LinkedIn and X (formally Twitter) to stay up to date. Use the hashtag #SafeinSport when sharing information about the campaign.

We have a number of resources in our Resource library to support you in involving and working with parents and carers to keep children in your sport and activity safe. Please also watch our campaign animation and share this with parents to let them know how you can work together.
