Royal Life Saving is focused on reducing drowning and promoting healthy, active and skilled communities through innovative, reliable, evidence based advocacy; strong and effective partnerships and quality programs, products and services. There is no one reason Australians drown, so there is no one simple solution. For that reason, our approach needs to reflect the complexity of the range of issues that result in drowning deaths.

For over 125 years the Royal Life Saving Society has worked to harness the strengths of the communities we work with to reduce drowning and turn everyday people into everyday community lifesavers.

We do this by:

  • Advocacy and awareness-raising
  • Education
  • Training
  • Health Promotion
  • Aquatic Risk Management
  • Community Development
  • Research
  • Media and Marketing
  • Sport, Leadership and Participation
  • International partnerships.
