About O.W.E.N.

The Open Water Education Network is the home of Water Safety in the UK. Launched in 2018 to carry on the legacy of Owen ‘Hero7’ Jenkins who tragically drowned in the River Trent in July 2017 after saving two of his friends.

His parents are now trying to spread a positive message around as many children as possible through the Open Water Education Network to ensure more lives aren’t lost.
