Parents in Sport Week 2021

Monday 04 October 2021

Today marks the first day of Parents in Sport Week 2021 (4 – 10 October) across the UK, a collaboration between the NSPCC and the Child Protection in Sport Unit (CPSU). And this year’s campaign focuses on working with parents directly to give them everything they need to be part of the bigger safeguarding picture in sport.

Motorsport UK is the national membership organisation and governing body for four-wheel motorsport in the UK, representing competitors, volunteers, clubs, and fans. It is committed to providing a safe and positive environment for everyone involved in its services and activities, ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all children and young adults. Together we can keep children safe in sport.

How to get involved to help raise awareness of Parents in Sport Week 2021

Throughout the week, new information and tools will be launching on the NSPCC and CPSU websites and social media using #ParentsinSportWeek.

Whether you’re a parent, member, club or event, you can help support this year’s campaign by:

  • Signing up as a Parent in Sport Week campaigner
  • Taking an e-learning course on how to keep children safe or asking parents you know to take a module
  • Share or pin the Parents in Sport Week animation to your social media channels
  • Spread the word about Parents in Sport Week on social media by using #ParentsinSportWeek, tagging @NSPCC, @TheCPSU and @OurMotorsportUK
