We are running a Survive and Save course every Wednesday at 5:30 - 6:00 pm. These are 16 week courses for just £104! Book now!

We teach the Royal Life Saving Society’s SURVIVE and SAVE programme, to ‘safeguard lives in, on and near water’.

Survive and Save has been developed by the Royal Life Saving Society UK to address the current drowning environment. The programme includes an increased focus on self rescue and survival skills to tackle and identify area of risk

  • 22% of people who drown fall-in and cannot get out or stay on the surface.
  • 34% of drownings follow an unknown activity; indicating that the casualty was alone, so self rescue and survival would help these people.

The Survive and Save Lifesaving Awards are a suite of progressive awards that teach personal survival, rescue, sport, fitness skills and knowledge to swimmers who are 12 years and over.

The awards are progressively structured into three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold and four awards are available at each level.
Survive and Save is the very latest RLSS UK National Lifesaving Awards programme and the new lifesaving standard.

At each stage you will learn certain core skills together with skills relevant for use in still waters eg rivers, lakes, locks and flood situations…
