Drowning Prevention Week, is the national campaign run by the Royal Life Saving Society UK to promote water safety messages and help reduce incidents of drowning.
Drowning Prevention Week, this year running from 21 to 29 June 2014, encourages schools, clubs, leisure centres and communities to come up with new and exciting ways to show people how they can have fun and stay safe around water.
The campaign also aims to raise money for the charity’s drowning prevention programmes, including supporting families who have been affected by drowning or near drowning.
If you have been affected by drowning or near drowning, you may benefit from our free telephone counselling service. For more details click here.
