Water Safety New Zealand’s purpose is to provide leadership, advocacy and education for the wellbeing of all people in New Zealand.

Advocacy is an important element in our sector leadership as we work for a step change in New Zealand, so people don’t drown. This means Water Safety New Zealand engages with central and local government, as well as many other bodies, to provide informed insights that seek to drive initiatives which can have real impact.

Water Safety New Zealand plays a leading sector role in Government engagement to ensure our collective voices are heard and to support the long-term financial sustainability of the sector.
