Training lifesavers and first responders in every community

Every community needs trained lifesavers and first responders – to be there to help. Royal Life Saving has developed a comprehensive range of training programs to engage all ages and sectors. We are inclusive and committed to the ideal that ‘Everyone can be a Lifesaver’.

Importantly, to ensure all Western Australians receive this vital education, during 2021-22 we conducted regional training programs that engaged 5,015 participants in locations from remote Kimberley communities to the Great Southern coast. Training was also provided to 4,757 participants living with a disability, 369 from multicultural backgrounds and 538 First Nation Australians.
