Surf Lifeguard training, awards and fitness are all aimed to develop and hone the skills needed to save a life. It’s why we have a Lifesaving pathway starting at age 14 and issue over 4,000 Lifesaving competency awards each year. Our trained Lifeguards respond to life threatening situations whilst creating, sustaining and managing search and rescue activity to prevent drowning and avoid danger.
The traditions of Surf Life Saving have nurtured and embedded a culture of voluntary search and rescue service in our communities. SLSGB qualified Surf Lifeguards provide advice to members of the public, save lives and administer first aid to beach users.
The SLSGB Lifesaving Pathway provides a progressive programme of volunteer activity structured to build the capability to save a life.
