The new Working with Children Check is being phased in for Surf Life Saving for the 2016/2017 season. For this season all new members or members who have not completed the Working with Children Declaration previously will need to download, complete and return the Surf Life Savings NSW Member Protection Declaration. Completed forms should be given to Leanne Goggin p: 0439 848 996.
