They must ensure that everything done by the RNLI is genuinely and solely in pursuit of its objects: firstly, to save lives, promote safety and provide relief from disaster at sea, and, secondly, to save lives, promote safety and provide relief from disaster on inland waters.
RNLI Trustees bring a wide range of knowledge, expertise and experience to the organisation and approve our Strategic and Business Plans, Annual Budget and Annual Report and Accounts.
Trustees are appointed from within and by the RNLI Council at the Annual Meeting of the Council each July. However other people with the right skills and experience may also be considered.
Meet our current trustees.
