We save lives at sea through our 24/7 search and rescue lifeboat service, seasonal lifeguards, water safety initiatives and youth education. Working together with partners and communities, we aim to educate, influence, supervise and rescue those at risk from drowning.
Every day of every year, people of all backgrounds get into danger in the water. It’s a problem that we’re here to tackle.
Today, with your support, we are working harder than ever to end preventable drowning. In addition to our 24/7 search and rescue lifeboat service, we operate a seasonal lifeguard service. Every year, our volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards help and rescue thousands of people and have saved over 143,900 lives since 1824. Countless more lives are saved through our youth education and water safety work.
