Wolves support Parents in Sport Week 2020

Wolves are backing the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit's Parents in Sport Week 2020, which kicks off next week.

Parents in Sport Week 2020 takes place from 5th to 11th October and aims to highlight the important role parents play in youth sport, from helping to keep children safe, to encouraging them to take part and achieve.

As part of the campaign, the NSPCC Child Protection in Sport Unit are asking sports parents to make the Sports Parents Promise – a three-point pledge to their children to listen to them about their concerns, check clubs are safe to enjoy, and encourage their children to take part in a positive way.

They hope this will help parents to understand how their contribution to their child’s sport makes it a safer place for all children.

Wolves head of safeguarding Lisa Carter said: "We are really pleased to be supporting this campaign and sharing across all of Wolves.

“There is nothing more important to us than keeping children safe and we work really hard to develop good relationships with our parents.

“We hope this campaign will highlight how important it is for parents to talk to us and for us to listen when they do.”

You can help support the CPSU and Parents in Sport Week by making the Sports Parents Promise on their website, where you can also find a wealth of helpful information about being a great sports parent and working with parents in sport.

You can also support and follow the campaign on social media using the hashtag #ParentsinSportWeek2020.
