Who are the RNLI?

Initially founded in 1824 and renamed The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) in 1854, the RNLI is made up of a vast team of volunteers and dedicated staff who work tirelessly to save lives out at sea. Their lifeboat crews provide a 24-hour rescue service across the UK and Ireland, whilst their Flood Rescue Team offer help and support to those who are affected by flooding. Not to mention their team of seasonal lifeguards who look after people on busy beaches. 

With kind donations primarily powering the RNLI’s search and rescue teams, they have been able to save lives for nearly 200 years. With their volunteers at the heart of everything they do, they’re proud to be a part of a team full of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.
