International resources

Lifesavers worldwide can download free guides to help develop their own services.

Since 2012, the RNLI has been working with partners in low-resource areas, helping them to set up rescue and prevention services. Together we’ve tested and developed a series of free, open-source materials to help others do the same.

If you have any feedback or questions about how to use these guides safely and effectively in your own organisation, please email us at [email protected]
