RNLI Volunteer Commitment

The RNLI values every volunteer and aims to work in partnership with each person.

The RNLI will:

  • welcome you as a volunteer and provide appropriate opportunities to those who can help us achieve the RNLI’s purposes
  • provide you with appropriate training and the right equipment for the task
  • give guidance and support your development in your volunteer role
  • treat you and all volunteers equally and fairly
  • ensure you have a safe working environment so far as is reasonably practicable
  • listen to your concerns if things aren’t going right
  • recognise that you are a volunteer and have other commitments.

In return we ask you to:

  • commit to necessary training and give us your time
  • comply with agreed standards
  • be professional and loyal to the RNLI
  • be fair to those around you
  • talk to your RNLI colleagues (volunteers or staff) first if you have a problem.
