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.
RLSS UK is the leading provider of training and education in lifesaving, lifeguarding, water safety and life support skills in the UK, and also the governing body for Lifesaving Sport.
RLSS UK Members and Volunteers are an essential and valued part of the ongoing delivery of water safety education and lifesaving skills, ultimately helping to reduce the number of people drowning.
