Get In Touch
Our focus is on Public Awareness and education. Tragically, an average of 110 people drown each year in Ireland. We feel that this is simply unacceptable considering that most fatalities are avoidable. We strive to reduce these fatalities by increasing water safety awareness and by changing attitudes and behaviours so that our aquatic environments can be enjoyed with confidence and safety.
Get in touch if you need advice or if you would like to help us on our mission.
If you wish to contact WSI through the Irish Sign Language Act, please contact [email protected]. WSI will arrange procedures for sourcing and arranging interpretation for those seeking to avail of or access our services through ISL. While we have no set notice period that a person is required to give us when seeking to avail of WSI services via ISL, as this will depend on the urgency of the enquiry, we will typically require 2 days to revert. Also note that the arranged sources for the provision of ISL interpretation will be either remote web-based ISL interpretation or In person ISL interpretation or both.
