Do you know someone who deserves a "Watch Your Mate” Medal?

We are looking for the unsung heroes who make water safety their priority. Who deserve recognition for their tireless commitment to keeping children safe in the water. Whether you're splashing in the pool, riding the waves, or lounging by the lake, you know the importance of keeping a watchful eye on loved ones.

The Watch Your Mate Medal Awards aims to honour local legends of swim safety and acknowledge them as a shining example for others, and beacon of security in our communities. The program is an opportunity to spotlight an everyday water safety hero or organisation.

Each month, Kids Alive will select a water safety hero to honour with a Watch Your Mate Medal.


Spread the word about the Kids Alive Watch Your Mate Medal Awards in your local community. We have designed a range of tools you can utilise to get the community on board and interested in helping us uncover local unsung water safety heroes.
