Surfers Against Sewage is a national marine conservation and campaigning charity that inspires, unites and empowers communities to take action to protect oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife.

Surfers Against Sewage is a marine conservation and campaigning charity that inspires, unites and empowers communities to take action to protect oceans, beaches, waves and wildlife. 

Together, we’re much more than our name suggests. We’ve made great progress on cleaning up our beaches from sewage and the cleanliness of our seas remains in the DNA of the organisation. But that's not all that we do. We work on other issues including climate change, water quality, coastal development and plastic pollution - it's a huge issue we are all facing and needs a lot of attention.

How do we do this? With you! Building a community through education, volunteering, beach cleans, campaigns, parliamentary events and advocacy to create the change we want to see for the future. 


Our Mission

We create ocean activists everywhere for a thriving ocean and thriving people.

Our mission is totally inclusive and is about connecting all humans to the ocean and creating communities of people who want to make real change happen. We support and empower people to campaign together as the authentic voice of the ocean. 

Not just surfers, not just sewage. We’re just like you - we love our oceans. We’d like to see them better protected for the future for everyone. We’re a charity that is focused on creating great community projects and campaigns that you can get involved with.
