The Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) is the leading charity in lifesaving and lifeguarding and is pleased to announce its new President - Deborah Hunt.  

Deborah Hunt will be the first female president of the RLSS UK and will hold the post for three years. She is replacing Mark Smith as President, who we wish the very best for the future.  

Deborah has extensive knowledge of RLSS UK, having been a volunteer member for over 50 years and a trustee for eight. She has been involved in every aspect of the Society’s work and is passionate about lifesaving Sport. Being a technical official for lifesaving sport, Deborah has officiated at five World Lifesaving Championships and intends to continue volunteering as an official during her presidency.   

Deborah enjoyed a successful career in the police force and has subsequently used her skill set to develop our safeguarding policies.   

She is a keen open water swimmer, having successfully completed a cross-channel relay with six other female past Presidents of the RLSS UK Kent Branch to raise funds for the Society’s outreach programmes.  

Deborah said: “I am passionate about equality, diversity and inclusivity, so as the first female President I’m excited to see RLSS UK start to reflect the volunteers and communities which we support. However, we are on a journey and we must always continue to challenge and drive for improved representation and inclusion. What we do now and in the future impacts not only ourselves, but the success of others and RLSS UK. 
“Having been a volunteer for 50 years, ensuring we support our volunteer members who give so much of their time for free is key for our strategy to be successful. I will ensure our professional members have the right support and awards to be effective and successful, especially during these difficult times.” 

Deborah pledges that, under her leadership, the Board will be open, efficient and forward thinking who will actively listen and welcome challenging conversations.
