Reach out to our lifesavers today

Every summer, as people flock to the coast, the demand on our lifesaving service increases tremendously. We’re doing more than ever to prevent people from getting into difficulty in the first place. But if they do, they’ll need our help – and they’ll need it fast.

As well as helping to fund the kit, equipment and training that keeps our lifeboat crews and lifeguards ready for every rescue, a donation today could help fund crucial safety work. From education materials for schoolchildren to drowning prevention campaigns for adults, it all helps prevent tragedies in the water.

It’s quick and easy to support our crew with an online donation.

Your support saves lives in so many ways

We all reach out to save lives in different ways. Whether it’s a lifeboat volunteer like Andy (pictured left) launching at a moment’s notice to someone injured at sea. Or a beach lifeguard like Charlotte (right) rescuing a swimmer in difficulty. Or an education volunteer like Jacqui (centre) sharing vital water safety advice with children that will one day save a young life. Or a supporter like you making this all possible with a lifesaving donation.

None of us can save lives without people like you – thank you.

If you’ve got questions, or would like to donate by phone, call our Supporter Care Team on 0300 300 9907 (UK) or +44 1202 663 234 (if calling from outside the UK).
We’re here weekdays, 8am–6pm.
