Where does the money go?
With 35K km of coastline, volunteer Surf Lifesavers from over 300 clubs across Australia assist with over 1M visitors each year. Gratefully, the continued support of the community through house raffles Australia provides the necessary funding for training, equipment, rescue gear, and community education programs.
Purchasing Rescue Gear
The rescue gear and Surf Lifesavers use on a daily basis are the single biggest cost of the Surf Live Saver programs in Australia. The exposure to sand, sun and surf damage the rescue gear after a period of time. As there is only one chance to save a life, there is a need for ongoing maintenance and replacement of this equipment to ensure that it remains in top working condition. The support from the public through the purchase of house raffles in Australia helps fund these costs. Your help and contribution to SLSF is appreciated and you can rest assured that the funds are well spent.
Surf LifeSaver Training
With more visitors each year to the Australian coast, the demand for Surf Life Saver Services increase. All Life Savers earn a Bronze Medallion, a testament to their training in CPR, First Aid, fitness and rescue technique training. They must be recertified annually.
Training costs run $800 per volunteer. However, the benefits far outweigh the costs. The public's support through the purchase of house raffles in Australia helps fund these projects.
Rescue Gear and Equipment
The First Aid rooms of the Surf Life Saving clubs need constant replenishment with staple items such bandages, disposable sheets, etc. Typically, clubs spend on average of $2K on supplies at a cost of approximately $400 for each kit. From stings o minor cuts, over 30K injuries are attended to annually. Your support of house raffles in Australia are vital to the continued success of the Surf LifeSaver Programs.
