What's new for 2021?

Our aim

This year, the NSPCC are aiming Parents in Sport Week directly at parents whose children take part in the sports we work with, to give them everything they need to be part of the bigger safeguarding picture in sport. 

New resources for 2021

As part of this year's campaign, we'll be launching several new resources for parents to help skill them up on keeping their child safe in sport, these include:

new animation for parents on what abuse might look like in sport and how to get help

Short, interactive e-learning course for parents on how to keep children safe

New look parents' hub on the CPSU website, which parents can use as a one-stop-shop for safeguarding information

We'll be launching these new tools throughout Parents in Sport Week 2021 across the CPSU and NSPCC websites and social media using #ParentsinSportWeek.
