At British Weight Lifting parents play a huge role in helping the development of young weightlifters. 

This year's campaign focuses on giving parents the information and tools you need to be part of the bigger safeguarding picture in sport.

They have loads of great resources for parents to help skill you up on keeping your child safe in sport.
