    RLSS UK Conference

    Building on the success of recent years, the RLSS UK Conference is returning to Hinckley Island this summer, taking place on Saturday 30 June – Sunday 1 July. Over the past year, we have been busy listening to you and your experience whilst volunteering and participating in RLSS UK activity. This year we are committed to making good on our promises of delivering more and better resources, tools and awards for you to continue and grow your lifesaving activities, and we have lots of exciting new opportunities to introduce! This year’s conference will showcase the outputs of the Non-Vocational award programme including how to integrate these into your activity, new initiatives such as Club 2020, and the ongoing membership review. By signing up for a variety of keynotes and interactive workshops, delegates will enhance their understanding of how best to engage with these new initiatives and build on the excellent work that is currently undertaken. We’ll be joined by keynote speakers at the top of their field of expertise who will leave you, as a delegate, brimming with enthusiasm and determined to succeed in your own endeavours. The event will allow plenty of opportunity for networking, with the return of the branch challenge, a trade exhibition and a fun-filled evening to let your hair down and catch up with friends, old and new, from across the UK.

    Honours

    This year our Honours ceremony will take place on Saturday 13 October at the Worcester Cathedral.

    The annual National Honours Ceremony is designed to say thank you to all who contribute to a reduction in drowning in the UK and Ireland. The concept underlying the Honours system is that length of service and meritorious work should each be recognised separately. There are, therefore, two series of Honours – Service Honours and Merit Honours. Each series is independent of the other and each has different criteria for eligibility. Individuals may, and often will, hold both Service and Merit Honours and could receive one of each in a single year.  It should be emphasised that both Service Honours and Merit Honours have equal value and are awarded in recognition of valuable work done to support the aims of the Society. The Honours process also includes a series of Special Trophies and Awards. We invite all members to nominate individuals and groups who are considered worthy of recognition. For more information on each Honours category and to submit Honours click on the tabs below. Download the 2018 Honours GuidelinesPlease refer to the Honours Flowchart for further assistance. Friends of the Society nomination forms are available here.
