Drowning Prevention Efforts Over 700 people drown in the UK and Ireland every year and many more suffer injury, some life-changing, through non-fatal experiences. More people die from drowning in the UK and Ireland than from domestic fires or cycling accidents. As the Drowning Prevention Charity, our supporters are an essential and valued part of the ongoing delivery of water safety education and lifesaving skills. We have a huge challenge in cutting down the number of unnecessary deaths as a result of drowning each year and we rely heavily on donations to help support our work.
