About IWSG

Inland Water Safety Group, or IWSG for short, is a charity group (registered in England & Wales with charity number 1175451) set up to demonstrate the dangers of inland waterways and rivers, to deliver knowledge and training to the community and to promote safe, enjoyable working around water.

You might find yourself asking why we are doing this, when there are other organisations already doing this? The answer is that most other organisations or campaigns focus on safety at sea, whereas we focus on inland water and rivers.

The team have seen an increase in tragic deaths which have resulted from people getting into difficulties in water.
