Who we are

The Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS (UK) is the Drowning Prevention Charity and the UK’s leading provider of water safety and drowning prevention education. The Wessex Branch was formed in 1960 to promote the aims of the Society and educate people to be safe in, on or near water through a network of clubs and groups throughout Dorset, Hampshire and south Wiltshire, who provide water safety, lifesaving and lifeguard training. In addition, our awards are delivered in many leisure centres across the Branch.
