Drowning Prevention Week (DPW), this year is running from 18-25 June. The aim of the campaign is to help everybody across the UK and Ireland to #BeALifesaver and take charge of their own destiny to enjoy the water, safely.
Created by the Royal Life Saving Society UK, the campaign is now it’s 9th year and over that time the charity has gained an ever increasing amount of support to educate individuals and families, at a time of the year that is most crucial. Across the UK and Ireland there is a spike in fatal drowning incidents during the summer months.
This year is a positive effort to give individuals and families the skills and knowledge they require to enjoy the water, safely.
