Surf Life Saving South Australia Partners


The Office for Recreation and Sport (ORS) plays an important role in ensuring all South Australians have the opportunity to participate by supporting sport and recreation organisations to be sustainable, ensuring that high quality facilities and playing grounds are available, and making certain that our elite athletes are given every chance to succeed and inspire.

Being active is an intrinsic part of our culture and contributes greatly to our reputation as healthy, happy people. Not only do we undertake sport and active recreation for enjoyment, research has shown that regular participation has benefits for individuals, their communities and the state, in terms of social, health and economic outcomes.


Every year, thousands of emergency services workers and volunteers attend incidents throughout the State - putting out fires, rescuing people, conducting searches, freeing people from trapped cars, helping contain chemical spills, dealing with storm damage and much more.

It is our job to ensure that volunteers and employees within the fire and emergency services sector are provided with the resources and support they need to carry out this vital work.

The South Australian fire and emergency service organisations SAFECOM works with are the Country Fire Service, Metropolitan Fire Service, and the State Emergency Service. 



SA Water is owned by the South Australian Government. Our people embrace the challenge of delivering safe and affordable water services to more than 1.5 million South Australian customers. Once this water has been used, we remove the waste. We then treat it to ensure the best outcomes for your health, and reduce environmental impact. We are a major South Australian organisation. We employ more than 1400 people in a range of industries from engineering to microbiology.

SA Water sponsors Surf Life Saving South Australia’s BeachSAFE Education programs, including Surf Babies, Little Lifesavers, Surf Ed for school students and On The Same Wave – a program for people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.


Adelaide Airport is currently the fourth-largest domestic airport and sixth-largest international airport in Australia. It is the aviation gateway to South Australia and processes more than 7.7 million passengers annually.

This relationship starts at the top and seeks to involve everyone who works at Adelaide Airport – from high level consultation on airport operations through to volunteering in the community.

Adelaide Airport has supported Surf Life Saving SA through the donation of eight Inflatable Rescue Boats. The fleet are in active service supporting the beach patrols of inner metropolitan surf life saving clubs.

At LCS Landscapes we like to leave our mark as we strive to balance the needs of people with the needs of nature. Our solid reputation as an industry leader is built on this thoughtful approach to every project.

From initial briefings through to job completion we aim to minimise our on-site impact, working with nature rather than against, at the same time providing clients with well-defined, highly functional spaces.

As a progressive landscaping organisation, we’re deeply committed to preserving and, where possible, restoring vulnerable eco-systems. We research the locations in which we’re working, identifying ways to help these systems thrive.


Flinders University enjoys a well-justified reputation for its excellence in teaching and research. It has a long-standing commitment to enhancing educational opportunities for all and a proud record of community engagement.

SLSSA and SHAPE Research Centre have the view to developing a sustainable facility for elite athletes.

The West End Community Fund (WECF) is just one example of how West End gets behind South Australian communities, because life’s all about locals helping locals.  The WECF receives contributions from the many local people who access the West End water fountain on Port Road.  Proceeds are used to benefit local communities in many ways.  Our goals are to assist communities that have an urgent need and to provide funding for projects that will improve the lifestyle of a community.

West End Community Fund has supported Surf Life Saving SA in the delivery of the Radio Revolution, which will enable radio communications to be switched to a digital frequency and a dedicated virtual private network.
