NSW Clubs supporting local communities

At RLS NSW we have a team of dedicated staff who are passionate about educating communities on drowning prevention by providing practical skills and knowledge to children, teens and adults about swimming and water safety in, on and around the water.

Our education programs would not be nearly as effective or widespread without the generous support of the Club Grants Scheme. Each year RLSNSW is very fortunate to receive the support of local Clubs through grants that we use in their local community. Whether it be swimming or lifesaving lessons, education sessions or CPR awareness training the support of local clubs make this vital education accessible to people most in need.

This current funding year, Royal Life Saving NSW have been lucky enough to receive over $238,000 worth of club grants funding which will be used on a large variety of projects to create safer aquatic users and environments. Our funded programs this year include:

  • Kids and Youth at Risk Swimming and Water Safety lessons

  • CALD Adults Swimming and Water Safety Lessons

  • CALD Adults Water Safety Education Sessions and Campaigns

  • Kids & Teens Junior Lifesaver Holiday Programs

  • Youth Lifesaver Training

  • Preschool Water Safety Presentations

  • Primary School Water Safety and CPR awareness sessions

  • Aquatic Public Rescue Station

We would like to share our sincerest thanks to all of the Clubs who are supporting Royal Life Saving NSW this year. Without your support we would not be able to reach as many individuals and families in communities all over NSW. Thank you for supporting us in creating everyday Lifesavers!
