The Royal Life Saving Society WA is a not-for profit organisation, serving the community as the largest provider of water safety education in our state. Our volunteers, members, trainers, employees and lifesavers are found in almost all communities. Royal Life Saving WA is an Incorporated Association and charitable organisation endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office.


Royal Life Saving WA is one of the State and Territory Member Organisations of Royal Life Saving Society Australia. Each State and Territory Member Organisation is an independent and autonomous not-for-profit entity guided by their Constitution and governed by a locally appointed Board of Directors.


Royal Life Saving Society Australia is a founding member of the International Life Saving Federation (ILS) and a member of the Royal Life Saving Commonwealth.

Australia, along with New Zealand, Canada, United Kingdom and South Africa form the management committee for the Commonwealth Society. The Society is represented in over 40 Commonwealth countries.

Australia is represented on the ILS Board of Directors and the four Commissions (Education and Rescue, Development, Medical and Sport). The Society continually contributes to the ILS agenda in many ways and remains a very active member of the International Life Saving fraternity.
