The Surf Life Saving Association of Wales, is unique in the surf lifesaving world, because it is an entirely voluntary humanitarian organisation, with 3000 volunteers supported wholly by teams of Management volunteers.  There are no paid staff within this Association.

The Association is governed by a Board of Trustees who are supported by four Commissions, representing Lifesaving, Rescue Boats, Youth and Sport.  These four Commissions and their volunteers are responsible for delivering the strategies and plans that see the organisation fulfil its lifesaving purposes. 

Surf Life Saving in Wales saves lives on Welsh beaches.  Over the last 22 years, since digital records were first kept in 1995, the voluntary lifeguards of our lifesaving clubs have rescued 1672 people.  That is an incredible endorsement of the outstanding efforts our members deliver.  But it is not all about rescues, prevention is key and to that aim over the same period, we have given over half a million pieces of advice to the visitors on Welsh beaches.

Other important statistics in the same time-frame:

*    12552 first aid cases

*    3694 lifeguards qualified

*    1939 junior lifeguards qualified

*    Over 90% of the beach lifeguards employed by the RNLI each year in Wales for the summer months, are trained and qualified by our voluntary lifesaving clubs

Surf Life Saving in Wales is a charity (1157762) that is not publically funded and relies on voluntary contributions to help service the people and their communities in Wales.  Essential lifesaving equipment necessary for this task can vary vastly in price, such as:

*    Inshore rescue boat ~ £14000

*    ATV boat launcher ~ £7000

*    Defibrillator ~ £1150

*    Rescue board ~ £1000

*    Spinal recovery board ~ £500

*    Rescue tube ~ £95

Our association of voluntary clubs need your support to help us achieve our goal of preventing the loss of life through drowning.
