Charity profile

The National Sea Rescue Institute is a charity staffed by volunteers who are on call, at all hours, every day of the year.  We have rescue bases along the coast and on inland dams.  Our goal is to prevent drowning through education, through preventative measures and through rescue.  We visit schools in disadvantaged areas around the country teaching children about water safety, what to do in an emergency and how to do bystander CPR.  We have built an online training academy for our crew and extended this platform to include free courses for the public as well.  Other preventative measures include emergency signage, Pink Rescue Buoys for emergency flotation, rescue swimmers, lifeguards and active patrols during peak seasons. Donations and sponsorships cover our annual running costs.

NSRI has an open book policy and our financial statements are available on request.
