Drowning is preventable, yet over 400 lives are lost to drowning across the UK and Ireland, every year. Water safety education is vital and, in some instances, could be a child’s only opportunity to learn about the water.
We believe that water safety information should be accessible to all. In an ideal world, every child would learn to swim. However, as this is not the case, our resources can be delivered in the classroom or at home, which means while there may be barriers to accessing water, every child can still benefit from water safety education.
Our water safety resources encourage a safe relationship with the water. We also hope it will inspire children to have a future relationship with water, with all the mental and physical benefits that being in, on and around water brings.
