Life Saving Victoria is the peak water safety agency in Victoria. It was established in 2002, through the merger of the Royal Life Saving Society Australia Victoria Branch (est. 1904) and Surf Life Saving Victoria (est. 1947).
Since the establishment of Life Saving Victoria, there has been significant change across the community, government and volunteering landscape in Victoria. Because of these changes, the Life Saving Victoria board determined that a wide-ranging review of lifesaving capability and resourcing was required.
The review will determine how Life Saving Victoria should evolve to meet the changing needs of community, government and our volunteers. All the while, working towards our mission to prevent aquatic related death and injury, and our vision that all communities will learn water safety, swimming and resuscitation, and be provided with safe beaches, water environments and aquatic venues.
The Risk and Research services team at Life Saving Victoria has been commissioned to lead this review.
