About Us

The South East Sydney Multicultural Water Safety Committee has compiled this directory of aquatic services and water safety resources to provide information for service providers and community groups to assist with improving water safety on our beaches and waterways.

Based on the successful model implemented by the Illawarra Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Water Safety Committee, we aim to create a collaborative environment to encourage effective communication between multicultural services and aquatic service providers. In this way, we hope to ensure water safety initiatives are responsive to the needs and assets of the regions culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

Join us to increase awareness and education by exploring, developing and delivering water safety initiatives at our beaches, waterways and other aquatic environments.

The South East Sydney Multicultural Water Safety Committee is made up of the following organisations:
