Haven is helping to raise funds and keep families safe through fun and educational water safety activities.
Both Haven and the RNLI are at the heart of Britain’s coastal communities. As Britain's largest provider of domestic holidays, Haven operates 40 award-winning family holiday parks close to some of the most beautiful beaches and brightest resorts on the UK coast. From surf schools to segways, Haven holiday parks offer a full programme of family-friendly activities and entertainment.
Not only is Haven helping to raise funds for the RNLI across all its parks by supporting appeals such as Mayday, the holiday company is also working with us to champion coastal safety through fun and educational family activities designed specifically for their 2.6 million holidaymakers.
Haven and the RNLI have jointly created a new water safety activity for young people. Part of Haven’s popular Nature Rockz programme, the RNLI Water Safety activity helps young people and their families learn about beach safety in a guided outdoor session led by Haven’s experienced coastal rangers. Since the launch of the partnership in 2018, over 10,000 children have taken part in this activity, receiving vital water safety advice.
An award-winning partnership
In 2020 the partnership was recognised at the Business Charity Awards, winning the award in the Sports, Travel and Leisure category. The judges were impressed that Haven teams and guests had raised vital funds for the RNLI, and they loved that we are working together to deliver water safety education to both adults and children.

We are very proud to be partnering with the RNLI. As a family holiday provider with locations all around the Great British coast we have a ‘Safe & Secure’ attitude towards water and beach activities, which makes the RNLI the perfect fit for Haven. In 2017, we welcomed over 2.6M holidaymakers to our holiday parks, many travelling from inland towns and cities. This partnership gives us a huge opportunity to share vital water safety messaging with all our guests.
