Become a UK Coaching Week Official Partner

UK Coaching is kicking off UK Coaching Week 2021 with the launch of ‘The Great Coaching Comeback’ – a year-long campaign aimed at directly supporting coaches as they return to coaching after pandemic restrictions have been lifted in the UK.

UK Coaching Week is taking place from the 7-13 June and is set to empower athletes, coaches, organisations, and the public to celebrate #GreatCoaching and encourage coaches to adapt and recover their space within the sport and physical activity sector.

This year we're calling on partners, sporting bodies, clubs and any other organisations, who recognise the power of the nation's coaches, to sign up to become official partners by:

  • showing your commitment to Duty to Care and the five pillars that make up #GreatCoaching: Safeguarding, Diversity, Inclusion, Mental Health and Well-being
  • helping to spread the important #CoachingForAll message that coaching should be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of gender, age, race, ability, faith, or sexual orientation
  • amplifying the importance of embracing diversity at all levels of sport and physical activity by providing a platform for your coaches to share their first-hand knowledge and lived experiences
  • shining a light on the great work being done by the coaching community, helping to uncover the stories behind the people who have been so inspirational in keeping people active during these challenging times
  • highlighting the crucial role coaches will play in the year ahead, as we look to RECOVER, and take the opportunity to REINVENT so that together we REACH those most in need

And, of course: 

  • distributing our UK Coaching Week assets to your networks of athletes, coaches, clubs and partners, helping them to get involved
  • promoting the visual identity of UK Coaching Week via your social media channels.

Your Duties

Duty to Care

Our Duty to Care Toolkit equips coaches with the knowledge and skills to provide great coaching experiences.

Set across five areas, known as pillars – Diversity, Inclusion, Mental Health, Safeguarding and Well-being – the toolkit challenges coaches to demonstrate their knowledge of the principles of Duty to Care, creating diverse and inclusive environments that help to increase the mental health and well-being of both them and their participants.

Coaches who complete the free Duty to Care Knowledge Check in each pillar will earn themselves a nationally recognised Duty to Care Digital Badge, which they can display with pride to show their commitment to great coaching. 

By becoming an Official Partner of UK Coaching Week, you are showcasing your commitment to the five pillars of Duty to Care: Safeguarding, Diversity, Inclusion, Mental Health and Well-being.

You'll also encourage your coaches to earn the nationally recognised Duty To Care Digital Badge by completing our free knowledge checks. 

UK Coaching's Director of Coaching Emma Atkins, said:

The toolkit not only challenges coaches to demonstrate their knowledge of the principles of Duty to Care, but also guides them towards learning resources that can help them to adapt sessions safely. Helping all coaches to put that time and thought into creating diverse and inclusive environments where everyone can thrive.


We want coaches to share their lived experiences videos. 

  • How and why they got into coaching
  • Challenges faced/adversities they have overcome
  • What #GreatCoaching looks like to them
  • Advice for fellow and aspiring coaches

Encourage your coaches to record their videos (either before or during UK Coaching Week), and then during UK Coaching Week, put these videos out on your social channels under the hashtag #CoachingForAll. 

Don't forget to tag UK Coaching in your #CoachingForAll videos!

To give you some inspiration, here's one we made earlier with our very own Coach Programme and Pathway Manager and West Ham FC Performance Coach Jenny Coady.  

In return for the above, we will feature your organisation as a UK Coaching Week Official Partner on our website and send you an official partner logo.
