RLSS UK simply would not be able to deliver our lifesaving work without the support of our volunteers.

We are delighted to have relaunched the William Henry award to recognise the contributions of our brilliant volunteers. Hear from our President Deborah Hunt about the value of volunteering. 

Named in honour of our founder, William Henry, the award acknowledges the volunteer hours spent promoting RLSS UK, raising the profile of our clubs and members, and providing networking opportunities for our community.

If you don't currently volunteer for RLSS UK but would like to, please complete our Volunteering Form below to express your interest.
