Remote and Regional Participation

Drowning affects all communities and all regions at all locations in Western Australia. Children aged 5-14 years in regional and remote areas of Western Australia are at a significantly higher risk of fatal drowning with the rate in these areas being five times higher than the rate recorded in the Perth metropolitan area. Overall, 61.1% of all drowning deaths involving children aged 5-14 years occurred in regional Western Australia. Royal Life Saving Society WA is committed to community development in regional and remote locations across Western Australia, providing training, participation and leadership development opportunities in an effort to prevent drowning from occurring in regional and remote areas of Western Australia.
