Eighteen Surf Life Saving Clubs across the state will be given a new lease of life after successfully applying for funding through the NSW Government’s Surf Club Facility Grants

The 2017/18 recipients of the Surf Club Facility Grant have been confirmed with the successful applicants set to receive varying amounts for club upgrades, refurbishment and vital safety and accessibility projects.

Earlier this season the NSW Premier announced that the pool of funds would be doubled from $2 million to $4 million in a move welcomed by the Surf Life Saving community struggling to maintain ageing buildings and infrastructure.

Grants range from $25,000 through to $350,000 and will be used to upgrade facilities, including complete refurbishments of clubhouses, improving access to people living with disability, upgrading electrical wiring and storage facilities for vital lifesaving equipment.

Surf Life Saving NSW CEO Steven Pearce says the grants will make a significant difference to surf clubs as they work to provide safe, appropriate facilities to train lifesavers and provide lifesaving services to their communities.

“We are extremely grateful for the support of the State Government in making these funding programs available to our clubs.”

“By being able to fund these projects it will revitalise these important facilities and turn them into places that the entire community can be proud of.”
