Scotland's Drowning Prevention Strategy
Scotland's Drowning Prevention Strategy was launched in January 2018 and updated in March 2022.
The Strategy has two main targets:
- Reduce accidental drowning deaths in Scotland by 50 per cent by 2026 and reduce risk among the highest-risk populations, groups and communities.
- Contribute to the reduction of water-related suicide.
Since the strategy’s launch, Water Safety Scotland has worked tirelessly to meet these targets. A Two-Year Review of the strategy brings together all the work achieved from 2018-2020.
