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.
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.
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.
