Nick Marshall

Mermaid Waters, Queensland

Physiotherapist, inclusion advocate

While the Nippers program is a rite of passage for many Queensland children, until recently, kids with special needs had been sidelined from participating. Nick established his Albatross program to ensure all children could learn surf-lifesaving skills and feel part in the healthy beach culture. Using his AMP Tomorrow Fund grant, Nick is taking his Albatross Nippers to Queensland’s state surf-lifesaving championships and documenting the journey. This will be the first time that children with special needs will compete in a lifesaving event and Nick hopes the film will further promote engagement and inclusion.
