World Drowning Prevention Day 2023

“As Chair of the LGA Coastal SIG, I am proud we are supporting World Drowning Prevention Day, 25 July 2023.

World Drowning Prevention Day is a chance for everyone to reflect on what they can do to protect themselves and the people they love from drowning.” Cllr Ernest Gibson, South Tyneside Council

The LGA Coastal SIG annually support World Drowning Prevention Day and are delighted that we were able to support the National Water Safety Forum and RNLI to deliver an in-parliament event in our capacity as co-secretariat for the All Party Parliamentary Group for Coastal Communities on 11 July. The event heard from several speakers and was well attended by MPs who came to hear how they can support this initiative and pledge to “do one thing” for the 25th July.
