Our Mission

Drowning is the third leading cause of unintentional injury death worldwide, accounting for 7% of all injury related deaths. There are an estimated 388 000 annual drowning deaths worldwide and global estimates may significantly underestimate the actual public health problem related to drowning. This is unacceptable.

The primary goal of the National Lifesaving Academy exists to prevent drowning by providing education, training, research and development opportunities within the United Kingdom. We strive to provide education and training in all areas of associated immediate care.
