Hello from our ambassador; Julia Bradbury

Welcome to the Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code!

As the mother of a young son and a lover of the outdoors I know only too well the challenges of saying safe in the sun; when the charity invited me to become an ambassador for them last year I felt an immediate connection and jumped at the chance.

A New Initiative Launches to 'Blow the Whistle on Sunburn'

Supported by Julia Bradbury and partnered with the Association for Physical Education (afPE), sports coach UK and the Youth Sports Trust

Going live on the 7th May, www.oksunsafetycode.com is a FREE resource bank designed to ensure that children who attend organised outdoor activities stay safe in the sun. The initiative was devised and is funded by a small national charity, Myfanwy Townsend Melanoma Research Fund, after recognising that no such guidelines exist for those who work outdoors with kids.

So far, the support has been phenomenal, with a raft of National Governing Bodies of Sport and outdoor groups agreeing to back the initiative; designed to work across a full range of outdoor activities and within the varied parameters of each sport or group. Some are embedding the code into their coaching standards while others are using it to raise awareness of sun protection best practice.
