Partners and Supporters


When the Outdoor Kids launched in 2014 we partnered with four of the major players in children’s outdoor sport to help guide us on our campaign, and we continue to work with them today.

We appreciate and highly value their endorsement, which has helped us secure the backing of so many large organisations including; Sport England, Sport Wales and Sport Ireland. We use their expert advice to help guide our campaign materials to ensure all content is relevant and impactful.


The Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code is supported by hundreds of National Governing Bodies of Sport and overarching outdoor and coaching organisations.

Each has pledged to help us raise awareness, promote and share our guidelines with their database of coaches, instructors, teachers and leaders, as well as member clubs.

If your organisation works with children outdoors and you want to get involved, contact us here. You will be part of an expanding group of organisations who are creating noise to strengthen this vital form of both health and safety, and safeguarding.
