In our 200th anniversary year, will you join a force for good?

Become a vital part of our lifesaving family by signing up as a member.

Not only will you be helping to give RNLI lifesavers the equipment, training and support they need to save lives, you’ll also receive our exclusive membership handbook, and our quarterly Lifeboat magazine, packed with rescue stories and behind-the-scenes features on the RNLI. Join us and become an important part of our story of kindness. 

In line with the Fundraising Regulations, we aim to take all reasonable steps to avoid asking for regular donations from anyone aged under 18 so if you are under 18 and wish to set up a Direct Debit, please seek parental guidance first.

All fields are mandatory unless stated otherwise.

The minimum amount we can accept to become an RNLI member is £3 per month/£36 per year, so anything more that you can give is greatly appreciated. You can select the frequency when making your payment.
