Australasian Diving Safety Foundation
What is the Foundation?
The Australasian Diving Safety Foundation (ADSF), is an Australian-based Health Promotion Charity. The Foundation evolved from start-up grants from the Divers Alert Network Asia-Pacific (DAN AP).
On-going funding is planned from donations (tax deductible in Australia) from various benefactors, within and
beyond the diving community, as well as government grants.
