We are an incorporated association (registered in Queensland), whose first objective is: To support provision of a Life Saving Service, Public First Aid Service, Beach Patrol and Rescue service at places and times as determined by its members.
We aim to do this by providing operational support, administrational support, and financial support (see question below - what sort of work will you do?) to genuine life saving Clubs that are Affiliated with us.
We are also Affiliated with The Royal Life Saving Society Qld Inc.
We are often asked if we are a Surf Life Saving Club however we are not affiliated with Surf Life Saving although we fulfil a similar role to a Surf Life Saving Branch, but support Royal Life Saving Clubs to provide a service to the community.
Many of our members have over 20 years life saving service experience which allows us to provide valuable advice to Clubs.
We are registered with the Queensland State Government (Office of Fair Trading) as an Incorporated Association, our registration number is IA 54758.
We are also registered with the Australian Business Register and our ABN is 34 100 281 336.
Also, we are recognised with the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) meaning donations to us are tax deductible.

Most of our members are long term (volunteer) beach patrolling life savers, that wish to contribute to helping the community.
We do have some members that have no life saving history, however just have a genuine desire to help the community by volunteering in a support, administrational or other capacity.
All members of an Affiliated Club are entitled to apply for membership as an Affiliate Member with no fee payable to us.
