Royal Life Saving Society WA is determined to reduce the incidence of drowning in our state, through our water safety education and drowning prevention programs. As a community based not for profit organisation we rely on the support of donors and volunteers to ensure our message reaches the wider WA community.

There were 42 drowning deaths recorded in WA duirng 2016-17, which is an 11% increase on the previous year. Royal Life Saving Society WA CEO Peter Leaversuch says "we all need to play our part to ensure these statistics are reduced over the coming year. With another summer just around the corner I encourage everyone to think about how they might in their own way make a contribution to drowning prevention. It might be to improve your own lifesaving skills, raise awareness amongst your family and friends or make preparations to make sure you could help somebody in the water if the need arises. Put simply, Everyone Can Be a Lifesaver!"

Look our for volunteers shaking our Quackers collection ducks and selling some great merchandise.
