Belhaven Surf Centre, 36 Back Road, Dunbar, United Kingdom EH42 1NX
Description:

Dunbar Surf Life Saving Club (DSLSC) was established in 2014 to address the gap in provision for coastal water safety education in East Lothian. It is the only one of its kind in Scotland. The club is run by highly qualified and experienced volunteers and provides water safety training to children and adults from all walks of life.

We provide a unique and innovative approach that is contributing towards Water Safety Scotland Strategy’s target to reduce Scottish drowning statistics by 50% by 2026. This is delivered through a community-based initiative that develops education, first-aid, surf life saving skills and knowledge as well improving the physical and mental health of members.

The Club offers internationally recognised vocational qualifications. People of all ages can benefit not only by achieving qualifications but also by gaining volunteering experience and being part of a skilled safety team. DSLSC is a registered charity and affiliated to Surf Life Saving GB and the Scottish Surfing Federation. It is recognised and supported by the RNLI.

Thanks to a recent award from The Big Lottery Community Fund, we are expanding our activities to provide a volunteer beach patrol service. Our Belhaven ‘Baywatch’ team is comprised of highly trained and resourced volunteers who will contribute to improving the safety of all beach users.
