The Royal Life Saving Society UK is the governing body and leading provider of training and education in lifesaving, lifeguarding, water safety and life support skills in the UK. Each year its volunteers train approximately one million people in water safety, rescue techniques and life support, including 95% of all pool and beach lifeguards. Each year, the charity runs Water Safety Awareness Week to raise knowledge about how people can keep themselves and their loved ones safe. As a national charity, RLSS UK relies on public support.
