Working with parents and families is key to the Youth Sport Trust’s strategy to remove barriers to sport. WWPIS already works with a number of National Government Bodies and sports organisations around the world. It also supports sports organisations and coaches to help parents effectively engage with their children around sport.
Will Roberts, Chief Operating Officer at the Youth Sport Trust, said:
“We are really pleased to be partnering with Working With Parents in Sport, who share our passion and mission to support young people to benefit from positive, fun and enjoyable experiences through sport.”
The new partnership is expected to provide high quality support to the parents of thousands of young people, through combining the two organisations’ resources and networks.
Gordon Maclelland, Chief Executive Officer at Working With Parents in Sport, said:
“We are delighted to be working alongside the YST, a charity which shares our values and philosophies. We look forward to working together to reach more parents, coaches and clubs.”
