National Water Safety Awareness Week takes place from June 12th – June 18th 2023. During the week, our national campaign will communicate important water safety messages to the general public to help start a conversation in homes throughout Ireland. Through spreading awareness of water safety practices, we can work together to help reduce drownings.

Our commitment to water safety and drowning prevention is as strong as ever and we have developed a number of resources that can be shared by you if you would like to support our cause. As well as featuring across media throughout Ireland, our social media channels will also share the material throughout the week. Now is the time to make water safety a part of your conversations with family and friends alike.
