Share your story

Stories can help save lives. Whether it’s you or a loved one being rescued by RNLI lifesavers, or surviving because of the RNLI’s safety advice, your story can inspire people to support our lifesaving work and stay safe themselves.

As a charity, the RNLI relies on people’s donations to power our lifeboat crews and lifeguards. People’s stories of how the RNLI made a difference to them or their loved ones can help inspire others to support our mission by donating, volunteering or following our safety advice.

We are always keen to hear from people with real-life experiences of our lifesaving work, who could volunteer to share their stories through our communications and campaigns to help us raise awareness and funds.

How might my story be shared?

We share people’s stories in a variety of ways, such as through our website, social media channels and magazines, interviews with local and national media, fundraising campaigns, training and events.

Here are just a few examples of stories people have shared with us.

What does sharing my story involve?

Your story is a gift, which is yours to share. We know that some stories can be very emotional to tell. If you give permission to share your story, we may contact you about opportunities to tell it, such as through the media or in our publications and campaigns.

If you have a story related to the RNLI, please send us a few details so our friendly case studies team can contact you to discuss how we might share it.
