The work of Surf Life Saving across Australia
There are over 50,000 volunteers patrolling 311 beaches around the Australian coastline. The safety of you, your family, and your friends is their whole purpose for being. Last year alone they undertook almost 300,000 preventative actions and saved tens of thousands of lives
But you don’t need to go to the beach to benefit from Surf Life Saving services. Each year, Surf Life Saving trained volunteers use their life saving first aid and CPR skills in all sort of situations - shopping centres, car parks, in the office or on the street. These committed volunteers have the training and commitment to save lives anywhere and anytime
Donations and community support
Many Australians don’t realise that Surf Life Saving is a charity and while most agree we are a worthy cause, few understand that we are also a needy one. We depend on donations from generous Australians, which are vital in providing support services to the community - services that many take for granted.
More than 70% of our funds come from community support
