Hello everyone,

I hope you and your families are keeping well. As the external environment continues to change around us, please watch this video message about how we can all play our part to protect our lifesaving service for the future:

Supporting our charity and each other

Thank you for taking the time to watch this message, and for your support in ensuring our charity operates as efficiently as possible over the coming months.

I know you will do everything you can to support the RNLI, and I am also conscious that many of you will be concerned about any personal impact on your own families. If you need any support, please do not keep it to yourself – speak to your team, your crewmates, colleagues, and friends, or you can find out more about support available at the RNLI.

We all have different challenges and life experiences, and it is vital that we continue to be understanding of one another while we work together to protect the RNLI for future generations. Please keep depending on each other, trusting each other, and facing the storms together.

Our people are what make the RNLI such an incredible charity, and we are strongest when we stand together as one crew.

Mark Dowie
Chief Executive
