The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our lifeboat crews rescue 23 people a day, while our lifeguards patrol more than 200 beaches in the summer.

Join our team of dedicated volunteers who contribute their time, energy and skills collecting for the RNLI. Your help will ensure we can take on more collections within the community and raise vital funds needed to keep on saving lives.  

Can you help the RNLI fundraise to save lives?

We are looking for volunteers with a friendly and welcoming nature who can offer their time to help collect at local stores, superstores, shopping centres and with our street collection days. Each collection requires collectors to volunteer two hours of their time collecting donations and generating support within the local community.  

This role would suit a friendly welcoming person who enjoys being part of a team and working within their local community.

We’re delighted that you’re interested in volunteering with the RNLI and hope you’ll find an opportunity to get involved.

This is a volunteer opportunity within the RNLI.  RNLI volunteers are people who, unpaid and of their own free will, contribute their time, energy and skills to support the purposes of the RNLI.  RNLI volunteers may perform a variety of tasks and duties, under direction and guidance, using their skills, knowledge and time to help the RNLI best achieve its objectives.

We respect and honour our volunteers by building trust and understanding.  Such a partnership is not intended to be a legally binding contract or to have mutuality of obligation, but instead express a voluntary two-way commitment where everyone gains satisfaction from being part of our organisation.

Our staff and volunteers have been saving lives at sea without prejudice for nearly 200 years. We respect and value diversity of background, skills and perspectives within our teams, and consider it essential to help us deliver a world-class lifesaving service. We are an inclusive organisation and welcome applications from everyone. In addition to having the skills needed for the role, we also look for applicants who share our commitment to living our RNLI values (trustworthy, courageous, selfless, and dependable), and helping us work towards our goals of halving drowning in the UK and Ireland by 2024. This involves a growing commitment to preventative action, using our expertise to work in partnership with communities locally, nationally and internationally to prevent drowning.
