Portishead RNLI volunteers of a variety of roles, including a shop manager, deputy lifeboat press officer, education volunteer, shore crew member, helm, crew member and fundraising volunteer. 

Following on from the successful trial last year, we are now launching monthly one crew welcome sessions for all new RNLI volunteers.

The online sessions will cover key information about the RNLI and the next steps in the volunteering process.

All new volunteers will be able to sign up to the sessions via Eventbrite and will be sent the Microsoft Teams call link and joining instructions.

Whether you are a new volunteer yourself, manage volunteers or know someone who may be interested in going along, you can find all information on the Eventbrite page.

You can also download this one-pager (PDF 232KB) with all of the session dates and booking information, which you may wish to display in your place of volunteering.

The Volunteering Development Team can’t wait to welcome all the new RNLI volunteers joining and starting their journey with our lifesaving charity!
