Grey Medallion Program  

Active Ageing Australia endorses this Royal Life Saving initiative.

Did you know that 1 in 3 drowning deaths are of people over the age of 55?  The Grey Medallion program is a water safety and lifesaving skills initiative for older adults. It aims to encourage a healthy, independent and active lifestyle through the development of essential skills in order to participate in aquatic recreation activities safely.

This practical program provides older adults with personal survival techniques, improved swimming skills, skills to deal with emergency situations and a thorough understanding of water safety knowledge in order to reduce the likelihood of drowning.  More information below:
