About Life Saving Victoria
Our mission is to prevent aquatic related death and injury. Our vision is that all communities will learn water safety, swimming and resuscitation, and be provided with safe beaches, water environments and aquatic venues.
We employ more than 300 staff and our lifesaving clubs have more than 31,000 members – all of us working towards our mission and vision.
We work with communities, educational institutions, governments, businesses and the broader aquatic industry.
