Keeping Children Safe in the Heat

With Lincolnshire and other parts of the UK experiencing a soar in temperatures this week, Lincolnshire FA would like to provide some guidance on how to keep children safe when participating in outdoor activities in the heat.

The Child Protection in Sport Unit promotes the Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code, which was started in 2014 by the Melanoma Fund and has been re-launched for 2019.

Outdoor Kids is designed to help sports coaches and outdoor activity leaders safeguard children participating in their activities and events during the hot weather.  

Club Welfare Officers who sign up to support the campaign will receive the following resources:

The OK code - everything you need know about sun protection

Sample sun policy - to help you create your own

Downloadable online and printable resources to help promote responsible sun safety

OK accreditation - show everyone you're a sun safe organisation
