Featured Organization: Surf Life Saving Australia SLSA
To provide a safe beach and aquatic environment throughout Australia.
Surf Life Saving Australia (SLSA) is Australia’s major water safety, drowning prevention and rescue authority. SLSA strives to create a safe environment on Australia’s beaches and coastline through patrols, education and training, public safety campaigns and the promotion of health and fitness.
With 165,820 members and 311 affiliated surf life saving clubs, Surf Life Saving is the largest volunteer movement of its kind in Australia.
The majority of SLSA’s services are provided by surf lifesavers who complete surf patrols voluntarily. Surf Life Saving Australia also operates the country’s largest lifeguard service, contracting to local government and other coastal land managers.
Surf Life Saving is a not-for-profit movement that exists only through community donations, fundraising and corporate sponsorship. SLSA is an active part of Australian local communities. Their movement prides itself on offering mateship, education, experience and in doing so gives back to the community.
“For people young and old, Surf Life Saving inspires a positive and uniquely Australian attitude. Because every member, every club, the entire movement, embraces and promotes a ‘can do’ attitude to life. It protects life, it saves life, it promotes life.”
