Surf life saving clubs across Heathcote can now apply for funding for infrastructure improvements as part of the $4 million statewide boost to surf club facilities funding.

Surf life saving clubs across NSW are set to benefit from funding which will improve facilities which help save the lives of locals, visitors and tourists and I encourage all surf life saving clubs in Heathcote to take advantage of this opportunity and apply for a grant.

Surf life saving clubs are home base for our tens of thousands of volunteer lifesavers patrolling our beaches, allowing all age groups to learn about and contribute to water safety.

We rely on the skill and passion of volunteer surf lifesavers to provide this service and this vital injection of funding will ensure lifesavers have the support they need to do their important work through improving the standard and quality of surf life saving clubs in NSW.

In the past decade the NSW Government has allocated more than $28 million in funding to make club facilities across NSW safer, accessible and secure.

Applications close Friday 5 October 2018 at 5pm.
