‘A conference focusing on increasing participation for individuals, clubs, groups and branches’

RLSS UK Conference will be taking place at Hinckley Island Hotel, Leicestershire, on Saturday 1 – Sunday 2 July 2017.

Active participation is key to reducing drowning across the UK. The more people we engage in essential lifesaving skills, the more chance they have or keeping themselves and others safe. Volunteers, lifesaving clubs and branches are uniquely placed to pass on these skills through their sessions; encouraging communities to come together in an enjoyable and friendly way.

The 2017 Conference is focused on giving back to you, to allow you to increase your capacity and knowledge. We aim to deliver an innovative conference that will provide a host of tools and insight, from a variety of sectors, case studies and specialists. The conference will leave you, as a delegate, brimming with ideas and tools to support you to grow your activity and make things that little bit easier to manage.

This year’s full programme is available to view here.
