Drowning Prevention Week – save the date

Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) Drowning Prevention Week Tile

Drowning Prevention Week (DPW) is one of the largest summer water safety campaigns across the UK and Ireland targeting families, carers, teachers and instructors of children aged five to fifteen years old with the aim of educating them about water safety.

The campaign will run from 15 – 22 June so please mark the week in your calendars and keep reading for ideas of how to get involved!

No child should drown, and with the right water safety education – such as knowledge of the Water Safety Code – accidental drownings are preventable. Drowning Prevention Week is deliberately timed ahead of the school summer holidays when children spend more time outdoors and when vital water safety skills can help keep children safe.

Please help to spread the word this year and encourage everyone to have the water safety conversation with children. DPW is critical in raising awareness and encouraging the public to enjoy water safely.
