The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) runs a number of safety and education programmes to help people avoid getting into trouble on the beach and in the sea.
The RNLI safety and education pages and downloadable resources page provides over 100 free teaching resources, mapped to the curriculum and covering beach and water safety messages, volunteering, charities and the role of the RNLI.
RNLI believes that all young people, whether they live inland or near the coast, need to learn how to stay safe by the sea. Their comprehensive education programme focuses on the RNLI’s lifesaving work as a charity and on sea and beach safety. All services and products have been carefully planned with learning and teaching needs in mind. They are free to all organisations working with young people between the ages of 4 and 18.
Visit the RNLI or invite the RNLI to your school, group or setting.
Interactive presentations are delivered by experienced speakers. Topics can include sea and beach safety, how lifeboat rescues work, the history of the RNLI, the work of a charity, volunteering and much more.
These can be arranged at your school or club, or at the beach or lifeboat station if this is appropriate. To arrange a presentation, please use this online form.
