Commonwealth Drowning Prevention

Royal Life Saving Society

Drowning is one of the biggest causes of preventable death in the world today, accounting for 360,000 fatalities every year.

The Royal Life Saving Society – Commonwealth Drowning Prevention is working to eliminate drowning in the Commonwealth. With active Member Branches in 29 Commonwealth Nations, we aim to reduce the incidence of drowning around the world by developing community-based drowning prevention strategies and lifesaving education programmes, and providing advice and education to Governments, NGOs and individuals on the development of water skills.

The Royal Life Saving Society will facilitate drowning prevention, lifesaving and lifesaving sport activity under the brand of The Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS).  The RLSS will also foster and facilitate exchanges and sharing between RLSS Members and Companion Organisations.
