This week is Keeping Your Child Safe in Sport Week, raising awareness of the role that parents and carers can play in keeping their children safe in sports settings.

Previously known as Parents in Sport Week, this year the NSPCC is launching Keeping Your Child Safe in Sport week. Although the campaign is running all year-round, in the first week of October there will be an annual focused awareness week.

The week aims to bring together parents, sports clubs and bodies, and NSPCC ambassadors to help parents and carers keep their children safe in sport.
