Information for Young People
Motorsport UK wants all young people who participate in motorsport to feel respected, safe and valued. We want to ensure your views are listened to and actions are taken on those views. We are committed to providing a fun and safe environment for you to enjoy the sport.
It is important to us that you share with your associated group what you feel about the sport and what they can do to make you feel safe and continue to enjoy your participation.
If you are worried about yourself or another young person, please see *I am worried about someone, what do I do* page on our website. This will talk you through how to share a concern and who you can speak too.
If you are worried or upset about something, try talking to an adult you can trust. There are also a range of helplines and websites where you can find helpful information, advice and support.
