Government Boosts Funding Directly to Clubs

The Marshall Liberal Government has formally delivered on a $420,000 election commitment to the State’s surf lifesaving clubs.

This commitment includes providing $5,000 a year to every SLSSA club for the next four years to help purchase front-line rescue equipment.

Minister for Recreation, Sport and Racing, Corey Wingard said, “We appreciate all the hard-work of our surf lifesaving clubs and that’s why we’re providing this funding to make sure our surf lifesavers are fully equipped to safely carry out the functions of their job.”

SLSSA President, John Baker said this was another significant announcement from the Marshall Liberal Government which will go directly to supporting our frontline volunteers. 

“As a volunteer movement, our clubs often rely on fundraising to help fund new equipment. This commitment by the Government will significantly reduce the financial pressure on clubs and help them deliver the best service to the community” John said.
