The Singapore Life Saving Society (SLSS) is a non-profit organisation with a mission to promote lifesaving and water safety in Singapore. The SLSS is a charity registered under the Charities Act 1982 (Reg. No. 0002) and an Institution of Public Character. It is also a member of the National Council of Social Service, a national sports association recognised by the Singapore Sports Council, a member of The Royal Life Saving Society, Commonwealth, and a member of The International Life Saving Federation.
The SLSS is widely recognised as the authority on water safety and lifesaving in Singapore. Our affiliates include uniformed groups (the police, the armed forces and the civil defence force), swimming clubs, schools, institutions of higher learning and recreation clubs. We examine and administer a wide range of lifesaving awards that are used as the basis for employment by lifeguards in Singapore. The SLSS also assists organisations on water safety and lifesaving. Among the awards given to SLSS members or units are the Singapore Youth Award, the Commonwealth Youth Services Award and The International Life Saving Federation Citation of Merit.
