What is the Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code?

A free downloadable resource bank and accreditation scheme. By getting OK accredited, individuals and organisations will be better equipped to protect children from the harmful effects of the sun while enjoying physical activity outdoors.

Why get involved?

Just a few incidences of sunburn in youth can double the lifetime risk of melanoma. Supporting this initiative and getting OK accredited will help you improve the provision on sun protection, build good habits and help cut the rising rates of melanoma in the UK.

How do I get Involved?

Simply register online, this will give you access to the OK Guidelines and free resources to help you develop a sun protection policy and ensure it is implemented throughout summer.

Is it right for my activity?

We have designed the initiative to support all activities and level of resources. We have made getting OK accredited as simple as possible so you can get up and running this summer.
