Our trained station volunteers are at the centre of RNLI lifesaving around our coasts.
Meet our volunteers
RNLI volunteers come from all walks of life and save lives at sea in all kinds of ways.
Meet some of our volunteers here and discover what inspired them to become an RNLI volunteer, what they get out of volunteering for the RNLI and the difference they each make to saving lives at sea.
Everyone is a team, across the whole of the UK and Ireland. A huge part of that is because everyone's a volunteer. No one questions why they do it. People just do it.
