During last year's Drowning Prevention Week we educated nearly two-million people with essential water safety advice, that saves lives. It is thanks to our supporters and members that we were able to reach so many people.
Throughout 2020 and 2021, millions of young people have missed out on the opportunity to swim, leaving a dramatic gap in school swimming and water safety education. And in communities where participation in swimming and water safety activities is already traditionally low, this worrying gap in knowledge and skills, exacerbated by COVID-19, is even bigger.
This year, more than ever before, RLSS UK needs your help to swell the ranks of people dedicated to keeping our waterways fun, friendly and secure places to be for everyone.
We will be producing a range of materials and video content that we would love you to share with your friends and family. Sharing these important messages will help others to enjoy water safely.
Feel free to show your support to our campaign by downloading our templates and look out for more resources at the beginning of June.
Everybody that gets involved shares the message and uses the hashtags #drowningpreventionweek and #enjoywatersafely, and tags @RLSSUK, will automatically be entered into the prize draw to win a Dryrobe. Why not share from multiple accounts and be entered into the competition multiple times!
Please help us with the continued education of your communities. Through this campaign, we are encouraging everybody to access our FREE, online learning packages. In your post, encourage people to visit www.rlss.org.uk so they can get a better understanding of water safety.
