Drowning Prevention Week 2018

June 16, 2018

Drowning Prevention Week is the national campaign from the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) and will run between 16 – 26 June 2018.

Find out how you can get involved in our national campaign and help prevent drowning here.

One person drowns every 20 hours in the UK and hundreds more suffer life changing injuries through near drowning.

By spreading water safety advice far and wide, Drowning Prevention Week aims to teach people how to stay safe near water.

The campaign encourages schools, clubs, leisure centres and communities to promote water safety through events, lessons, games and activities in a bid to make people more aware of the dangers of water.

To register your interest for Drowning Prevention Week 2018 please email dpw@rlss.org.uk.


Drowning Prevention Week aims to raise money for the RLSS UK’s wider drowning prevention programmes.
