Drowning Prevention Week is the national campaign from the Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) and will run between 16 – 26 June 2017.
One person drowns every 20 hours in the UK and hundreds more suffer life changing injuries through near drowning.
By spreading water safety advice far and wide, Drowning Prevention Week aims to teach people how to stay safe near water.
I.M.P.S. has a number of water safety resources available to our teachers and you can register your school for drowning prevention week here.
Have a look at a hard hitting video that talks about the dangers of getting in a river.
