Prepare the Next Generation of Volunteers.

For more than 100 years, people like you have been part of something very special: a close-knit family, working together to save lives and safeguard our precious beach lifestyle.

After the disruptions and challenges of this year – it’s more important than ever to build the skills of all our volunteer surf lifesavers.

The exciting new Surf Life Saving WA South West Development Centre will provide an important gathering place, where members from across Western Australia can renew old connections and form new bonds as they work together to save West Aussie lives, this summer and into the future.

With your gift today, you can help prepare the next generation of brave volunteers and continue our proud tradition of keeping people safe on West Aussie beaches – now and for generations to come.

Support the lifesavers of tomorrow

Surf lifesaving has always been part of Annika’s life. Her club community feels like an extension of her family – people of all ages looking out for each other.

Like any other family, it stretches back generations. With your support, it will continue for generations to come.

Annika has learned so much from those who came before her. The experienced lifesavers and coaches who taught her the skills she needs to save West Aussie lives on our beaches.

Now, even while Annika is still learning from those that came before, she’s taking her place as an emerging leader, teaching those that follow how to save lives in their turn. That’s why she’s so excited about our new development centre and all the opportunities it offers young surf lifesavers.

“One of my favourite parts of being a surf lifesaver is helping young kids build the skills they’ll use to save lives in the future. I’ve had so much help to get to where I am now. It’s so exciting to pass that knowledge on.

I’ve also been lucky enough to take part in a few training camps and meet some incredible West Aussies from all over the state. The new development centre sounds wonderful because it means more people will be able to take part in camps and courses.”

Please help build our new home away from home.

Earlier this year we purchased the ideal property in Margaret River. Since then we’ve been working on plans to transform it into a dedicated training and development centre for West Aussie volunteers.

Once complete, we’ll use this exceptional new facility to raise awareness, attract new members, and train more courageous volunteer lifesavers.

This vital resource will help to strengthen and grow our family so that, together, we can continue to save lives and serve the WA community in the years ahead.

Please make a gift today to invest in the next generation of surf lifesavers. With your support, we can give brave volunteers like Annika the skills they need to save lives on West Aussie beaches.

We have the opportunity to build a facility where passionate young volunteers can fulfil their potential as the future of our proud West Aussie surf life-saving tradition. With your help, we can save lives for generations.
