For 190 years, the RNLI has strived to do things better. And we will continue to do so.
We know that there is always a way to save more lives, to make things safer for our volunteer lifesavers, and to raise public awareness of our work.

In 10 years’ time, we’ll be 200 years old. What innovations will we be able to add to the list in 2024?
