With over 180,000 members from all age groups and demographics and 315 affiliated Surf Life Saving Clubs, Surf Life Saving represents the largest volunteer movement of its kind in Australia, and the world. Over the decades, SLSA has evolved, passing on knowledge from one generation to the next. This growth has been fundamental to its success in managing some of the most dangerous and unpredictable beaches in the world. Over the years, more than 685,000 people have been rescued by a surf lifesaver.
Along with Surf Life Saving Australia, we aim to make Australia’s beaches safer by striving for zero preventable deaths in Australian waters. We want to inspire all Australians to see that Surf Life Saving is a worthy cause and to donate, get involved with volunteer work and be safe in the water.
Rescue gear and equipment are some of the largest costs associated with providing lifesaving services throughout Australia.
We all love the sun, surf and sand; it’s why we go to the beach. But, as well as making a great day out, the sun, sand and salt also damage the rescue gear that our surf lifesavers use each day. There’s no second chance when it comes to saving lives! Ongoing maintenance and replacement of equipment is essential to make sure everything is in top condition and ready for beach emergencies.
Your donation means that our rescue gear and equipment stays rescue ready and you and your family remain in the safest hands possible.
