Ordinary people doing extraordinary things are at the heart of the RNLI.
The vast majority are volunteers. From our brave lifeboat crews and lifeguards, who risk their lives to save others. To our generous supporters who make their lifesaving possible. From our selfless volunteers, who devote their time and energy. To our dedicated staff, who work tirelessly behind the scenes.
On lifeboats, at lifeboat stations, on beaches, in shops, in schools, at fundraising events, in coastal communities, in museums, in offices, at home or on the factory floor, they all share a common purpose - saving lives at sea.
