The RNLI saves lives at sea and maintains an ambitious vision to end preventable loss of life at sea. Our relationship with RNLI is fluid and complementary, as RLSS UK and the RNLI work together closely at both a strategic and operational level.

The organisations align at a national level in support of both the UK Drowning Prevention Strategy and The Scottish Drowning Prevention Strategy. Our relationship extends to the development of products, campaigns and resources that meet the aims of both organisations.

In recent history, the relationship between the two organisations has been most fruitful at a local level, building resilience and developing local community safety plans. Operational staff align to utilise their skills and resources, to support communities to take charge of their own drowning issue.
