There are over 20,000 volunteer surf life savers in NSW all committed to assisting members of the public safely enjoy our beaches. 129 Surf Life Saving Clubs patrol our beaches and create safe places for us to swim every summer. They also work with our youth to learn positive skills through the Nippers program. There are dedicated volunteers that perform water rescues and there is a growing number of volunteers that assist with activities on the sand. So, if being in the water is not your thing, there is still a place to volunteer within a surf life saving club. Across NSW volunteers can learn to save lives as a First Aider on the beach or join the eyes in the sky team to patrol the water as a UAV operator or pilot. Surf Life Saving Clubs are always looking for people to help with quick tasks and short-term volunteering such as an event photographer, historian or joining the gear and equipment team.
