Drowning Prevention Week is the national campaign from the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) and will run between 16 – 26 June 2017.

One person drowns every 20 hours in the UK and hundreds more suffer life changing injuries through near drowning.

By spreading water safety advice far and wide, Drowning Prevention Week aims to teach people how to stay safe near water.

The campaign encourages schools, clubs, leisure centres and communities to promote water safety through events, lessons, games and activities in a bid to make people more aware of the dangers of water.

Adopt a School - RLSS UK

Adopting a school is easy, it takes very little of your time, it will help hundreds of children to learn about water safety, and it may even save a child’s life. Ultimately the aim of Adopt a School is to support and encourage schools to run water safety activities.

By adopting a school you volunteer to arrange at least two meetings with your local school’s head teacher. The first meeting is to explain how the school can access all of RLSS UK’s free water safety school resources, and the second meeting is at the end of the year to find out what activities the school has taken part in.

Of course, if you want to do more to support the school in delivering water safety, you can agree with the head teacher how you will help the school. Helping to deliver the activities is fun and rewarding.
