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.
Around 400 people drown in the UK each year, and thousands more have near-drowning experiences, many suffering life changing injuries. Shockingly drowning is the third highest cause of accidental death in children in the UK.
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.
