WA Swim and Survive Fund

Making swimming and water safety accessible for all!

The Royal Life Saving Society WA is committed to prevent drowning in our state, through education to assist all West Australians to know how to keep themselves and their families safe around water.

In many communities, swimming and water safety education is simply not accessible. Children and adults from lower social or economic families, affected by disabilities, from Indigenous or culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, or from regional and remote communities, are more likely to miss out making them extremely vulnerable to drowning. These groups are the focus of the WA Swim and Survive Fund.

With your help, we can ensure that everyone has the opportunity to learn vital swimming and water safety skills that could one day save their life.

The WA Swim and Survive Fund aims to:

  • Increase access to swimming and water safety education for children and young people experiencing social or economic disadvantage.
  • Foster strong, collaborative partnerships with the aquatics industry and the community.
  • Increase access to swimming and water safety education for children in regional and remote areas.
  • Increase aquatic training and development in regional and remote areas.
