Drowning is one of the leading causes of accidental death in children, in the UK.

Over 700 people drown in the UK and Ireland every year – equivalent to one person drowning every 10 hours.

The campaign, created by the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) aims to reduce the number of drowning and non-fatal drowning incidences that occur in the UK every year, by showing people how to be safe and have fun near water. The campaign encourages schools, clubs, leisure centres and communities, to promote water safety education through events, lessons, games and activities, in a bid to make people more aware of the dangers of water.
