RLSS UK and Surfing England have signed a partnership agreement that will see both organisations work to develop water safety awards for surfing and surf coaches.

This agreement provides a framework through which the RLSS UK and Surfing England will support information sharing and collaboration.

Both organisations are committed to sharing their knowledge to improve water safety and help this increase the number of trainers and surfing schools with specialist lifesaving knowledge from the UK’s leading training and education charity.

Rob Gofton, CEO of RLSS UK, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Surfing England on this journey and have an exciting new award in development with Surfing England endorsement.”
