Ministerial media release: Funding boost for NSW surf clubs

February 2019

Surf lifesaving clubs across NSW will share in $3.9 million as part of the NSW Government’s 2018/19 Surf Club Facility Program.

Funding has been awarded for 24 projects to improve the availability, standard and quality of surf lifesaving clubs across the state.

Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said the projects would enable volunteer lifesavers to do an even better job ensuring people were safe on our beaches.

“Surf lifesaving clubs play a vital role in our community keeping people safe in the water and providing opportunities for people to get fit and healthy,” Mr Ayres said. 

“I am pleased to announce the NSW Government has awarded $3.9 million in funding for 24 projects to enable our volunteer surf lifesavers to better protect people using our beaches.”

The Surf Club Facility Program provides grant funding for the upgrade, restoration or construction of surf lifesaving facilities that will benefit of members and the wider community.

“I congratulate the surf lifesaving clubs that were successful in securing grant funding, as do the millions of visitors to our beaches who will benefit from the projects,” Mr Ayres said.
