The RNLI is a charity that saves lives at sea.
Volunteer lifeboat crews provide a 24 hour rescue service in the UK and Ireland, seasonal lifeguards look after people on busy beaches and the Flood Rescue Team helps those affected by flooding.
RNLI crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives since 1824 but they are more than a rescue service. They influence, supervise and educate people too. The Community Safety teams explain the risks and share safety knowledge with anyone going out to sea or to the coast. And the international teams work with like-minded organisations to help tackle drowning in communities at risk all around the world.
