Quick ways to support us

Fancy volunteering but don’t have the time to commit to a role? We’ve got some quick, easy ways to support our lifesaving service. 

From joining our research panel to sharing vital messages on social media, these are quick ways to help.

How can I help?

Share our Respect the Water messages, images and videos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

When?

Whenever suits you – it only takes a few seconds, and you could save a life.

Where?

Online, from your phone, tablet or other device.

Why?

You’ll help us reach out to audiences who may not be familiar with the RNLI, raise awareness of our water safety messages and, ultimately, help reduce drowning in the UK and Ireland. 

Plus, you’ll get the satisfaction of helping save lives at sea and getting involved with a cause you believe in.

How can I help?

We want to hear your opinions. Sign up to join our Supporter View research panel, complete our online questionnaires and tell us your views on the work we’re doing. 

When?

Whenever suits you – we’ll ask you to take part in a questionnaire once a month and they usually take around 10 minutes to complete.

Where?

Supporter View is online, so you can take part wherever you are. The questionnaires will work on your computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet. 

Why?

With 92% of our total income coming from generous donations and legacies, we depend on our dedicated volunteers and supporters to save lives at sea. By understanding what our donors, volunteers and supporters think, you’re helping us make better decisions about our fundraising and the services that we provide.
