The Background

ok outdoor kids sun safety code - myfanwy townsend melanoma research fund

The Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code was devised by the Myfanwy Townsend Melanoma Research Fund. Launched in 2014, it was written with the help of Mr Paul Banwell FRCS (Plast), the Association for Physical Education (afPE), sports coach UK, The Child Protection in Sport Unit (NSPCC) and the Youth Sport Trust.

The initiative is targeted principally at anybody working with primary school aged children (6-12). If you are an individual or a group, we will help you produce and most importantly implement a sun protection policy.

The Outdoor Kids Sun Safety Code will…

Help you understand why sun protection is important – even in the UK.

Enable you to develop an effective sun protection policy, tailored for your sport/activity and resources.

Provide ideas to help you implement sun protection throughout the summer.

Offer resources to help you communicate and raise awareness to others.

Provide accreditation, showing that you are doing the best you can to protect the kids in your care.

Simply follow these 5 easy steps:

1 Get registered

2 Read the OK Guidelines and share with others

3 Create you OK Sun Pledge

4 Use our resources to promote awareness

5 Embed into your working practices and get OK accredited!
