Drowning Prevention Week

Published on 17 June 2019 by Sarah Dunne

The annual Drowning Prevention Week Campaign runs from 14th - 24th June 2019 

The campaign, created by the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) aims to reduce the number of drowning and non-fatal drowning incidences that occur in the UK every year, by showing people how to be safe and have fun near water. The campaign encourages schools, clubs, leisure centres and communities, to promote water safety education through events, lessons, games and activities, in a bid to make people more aware of the dangers of water.

Supporting Drowning Prevention Week will help scores of children to learn about water safety. It could even save a child’s life.
