All RNLI shops, museums and visitor centres, including the College in Poole, remain closed. Our lifeboat stations remain operational but will not be open to visitors.
Our lifeboats will continue to launch to those in peril at sea. We urge you to follow government instructions. But if you are at the coast, please take extra care and follow our safety advice.
We are currently working with local authorities and beach owners in the hope that we can provide a lifeguard service on around 30% of the beaches that our service usually covers this summer.
Our Chief Executive has written an open letter as the lifting of restrictions in England has put the RNLI in an impossible situation - to choose whether to put our lifeguards or the public at risk.
Our Supporter Experience Team are here to help.
