Welcome to the parkrun Safeguarding Hub.

This resource sets out a framework, with practical guides, for safeguarding everyone involved in any parkrun activity around the world, with a particular focus on protecting children and vulnerable adults.

We are committed to achieving and exceeding best practice standards of care for all of our parkrun family.

parkrun recognises that not all risk can be removed. We can, however, make sure that it has done as much as is reasonably possible to minimise and manage risk.

Here you will find the steps we take to safeguard parkrun and everyone involved in it.

If, at any point on your journey with parkrun, you have any safeguarding concerns at all, please do not hesitate to contact me. We all have a duty of care to protect our parkrun family.

Safeguarding Lead, parkrun Global
