The British Esports Association has developed a new Parent & Carers Guide in collaboration with the NSPCC, which aims to educate parents and carers about esports and online safety.

This guide has been created to provide information to help parents understand more about the esports industry.

Parents and carers can utilise this guide to expand their knowledge of the industry, the benefits of their children being involved and how some of the skills learnt through esports can be used in alternative industries.

A variety of subjects are covered in the guide to ensure that parents are provided with relevant facts about what esports is, and the prospects that come alongside it.

The contents of the guide include:

  • Information about the British Esports Student Champs
  • Benefits of esports
  • Esports in education
  • Academic pathways
  • Inclusivity and diversity in esports
  • How you can get involved with your child
  • Parents testimonials
  • Online safety

The most important areas highlighted in this guide are around safeguarding and keeping young people safe while partaking in esports. The resource also raises awareness of digital well being and online safety.
