SURF LIFE SAVING’S COMMITMENT STATEMENT
Surf Life Saving is committed to the Safeguarding of Children and Young People, under the age of 18, and acknowledges that a child-safe organisation doesn’t just happen; it requires conscious action to protect children from harm.

It is imperative that we provide a safe and supportive environment for children and young people, that focuses on fun, education and building the confidence of our people through positive learning and development.

Surf Life Saving’s core values include being open, welcome and inclusive and building stronger and safer communities for everyone. Surf Life Saving empowers and expects all Surf Life Saving employees, members, board members, affiliated clubs, consultants, contractors and licensees, to create and maintain a safe culture for children and young people.

Surf Life Saving is committed to reducing the risks of abuse and harm to Children and Young People, and will ensure all employees, members, board members, affiliated Clubs, consultants, contractors and licensees understand and adhere to SLSA’s Member Protection Policy.
