The Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) is the Drowning Prevention Charity and the UK’s leading provider of water safety and drowning prevention education.
Around 400 people needlessly die from drowning in the UK every year and thousands more suffer injury, some life-changing, through near-drowning experiences.
Putting these figures into context one person dies every 20 hours in the UK and drowning is the third highest cause of accidental death of children in the UK.
We have a huge challenge facing us to help save lives and reduce the number of UK and Irish citizens drowning, but we are working hard to deliver water safety and drowning prevention workshops throughout the UK, offer a wide range of lifesaving qualifications and workshops, and encourage participation in lifesaving sport. With the help of our supporters, we can reach more people, sooner – saving lives and encouraging everyone to enjoy life in, on and around the water – safely.
