2023 saw the launch of the first UK National Drowning Report from the Water Safety All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG), authored by the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK), and supported by the National Water Safety Forum (NWSF).

The inaugural report provides a tangible picture of accidental drownings in the UK and uses data from the Water Incident Database (WAID) as well as other reliable data sources to provide the UK Government with evidence backed insights on why the approach to drowning prevention needs to be improved.
