We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused – we’re working to fix the problem as quickly as possible. You can still make a donation, buy gifts and keep in touch using the links below.

The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. We do this by providing a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service, seasonal lifeguards and water safety education.

Last year, our volunteer lifeboat crew and lifeguards helped 38,713 people. But we couldn’t have done it without kind supporters like you.

Make a lifesaving difference today.
