Commonwealth Drowning Prevention

Royal Life Saving Society

Drowning is one of the biggest causes of preventable death in the world today, accounting for 372,000 fatalities every year.

The Royal Life Saving Society – Commonwealth Drowning Prevention is working to eliminate drowning in the Commonwealth. With active Member Branches in 27 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.
