What is Drowning Prevention Week?

Drowning Prevention Week is the campaign of the Royal Life Saving Society UK, the drowning prevention charity.

By spreading water safety advice far and wide, Drowning Prevention Week aims to teach people how to stay safe in and around water. The Campaign also helps the charity to raise valuable funds for their vital drowning prevention activity and to support those affected by drowning.

Why Is It Important?

Around 400 people drown in the UK every year and hundreds more suffer life changing injuries through near drowning.

More people die from drowning in the UK than from domestic fires or road cycling accidents.

What Can You Do?

·         Keep your family safe by making sure your children learn to swim as soon as they are able to, and that they also learn essential survival and self-rescue skills in a programme such as the Rookie Lifeguard Programme.

·         Always take your family swimming where there are lifeguards, and remember there is no better supervision than the constant supervision of a parent or guardian (lifeguards have lots of people to watch, you can keep a much closer eye on your family)

It’s Never Too Late To Learn How To Swim!

At Aneurin Leisure we provide a range of swimming lessons for people of all ages and abilities.  Our Aqua Pathway swim school is a seamless journey from a baby’s first experience in the water with an adult, to children who are competent swimmers, confident and skilled enough to continue with aquatic activities for the rest of their lives.  Our Aqua Skills sessions also provide the opportunity to learn a variety of life saving techniques.

If you’re an adult looking to learn to swim, improve your skills or build up your confidence to get back in the water, our dedicated team of professional teachers can tailor lessons around you to achieve your specific goal.

For more information call our Customer Advisor Team on 01495 355958.
