Give to a special appeal

Thank you for choosing to give to one of our charity appeals. Your generosity helps fund everything we need to save lives at sea, and we need your support now more than ever.

Help our volunteers to save every one they can

Being an RNLI volunteer is unpredictable – our lifesavers never know who will need rescuing next. What we do know is that even one life lost is too many. Our crews don’t launch into unforgiving seas to save most people. They’re out to save every one.  

When our crews are racing from rescue to rescue, they rely on the training, kit and lifesaving equipment that gets them there quickly and safely – the things that generous people like you help provide. When you give to one of our appeals your donation could help buy the seconds that save a life.

Celebrate the life of someone you miss

An all-weather lifeboat crew could be launching with your loved one's memory right by their side – find out how to add the name of someone you miss to our next Launch a Memory lifeboat.
