Being part of our lifeboat crew is a major commitment but rewarding too. Being able to support a team is paramount. You could be asked to risk your life at sea. Your commitment isn’t only measured in the time spent involved in rescues. Increasingly, new equipment and faster boats mean that regular training programmes also account for much of your spare time. You may also be asked to help show visitors around the station and with local fundraising.
What’s in it for you?
The RNLI provides first-class training and equipment, guidance and support. Volunteering with us offers you the opportunity to make a difference in your local community, save lives and be part of the larger RNLI family.
