You may not be a lifeguard—but you can guard a life.
Every hour, 42 people around the world lose their lives to drowning. They are sons, wives, teachers, toddlers. They are our families, our loves and our inspiration. And we lose them every single hour of every single day.

The Australian Life Saving movement is one of the world’s greatest families. It boasts generations of voluntary service, fosters lasting friendships, displays personal and professional integrity, and is totally committed to embrace the highest of human values: it saves lives.
A proud and loyal part of this family, Life Saving Chaplaincy Australia serves through pastoral care and social and emotional comfort for all Life Savers. We endeavour to respond to each individual’s needs, fostering sustained emotional and spiritual wellbeing for all members regardless of age, background or nationality.
I am so deeply honoured to be an Ambassador for LSCA in the wonderful role it plays in the Surf Life Saving Community and indeed more recently in International Life Saving. The enormous growth since formation of the Chaplaincy is strong proof of the great need for pastoral support to our Lifesavers.

Life Saving Chaplaincy offers a positive and helpful service to members as they do there work in Clubs, on the beach, and at Championship Carnivals. It is a most valuable and non judgmental member resource and one that I am proud to be part of.

I am proud to be an Ambassador for LSCA. To be able to support and help people is what Surf Lifesaving is all about. To have Life Saving Chaplaincy Australia involved in Lifesaving is a blessing.
