The charity making life better by water

Toddler water safety

Your life-saving gift could help teach young ones how to stay SAFE and Stay Away From the Edge.

Your gift today could help thousands of nursery teachers and parents to teach toddlers vital water safety lessons, with a pack of songs and activities.

Our waterways are wonderful places to take young children, where they can feed ducks, hunt for bugs, see how historic locks work or enjoy boat rides. But it's never too early to help enthusiastic toddlers learn about staying safe by water.

Together, we could teach children stay SAFE and Stay Away From the Edge. Over 80,000 primary school children have taken part in our water safety assemblies and workshops since April last year. Now, we're keeping nursery age children safe too.

If you know someone who loves helping children, your life-saving gift could help make the water a fun place to visit, for even the most adventurous tots.

All the funds donated through our 'Gifts with love from canals' are directly allocated to our mission of protecting our waterways and the wildlife that depends on them, helping make life better by water.
