Every day of the year, people get into trouble in the water.
The RNLI lifeboat crews provide a 24-hour rescue service in the UK and Ireland. Every summer, their lifeguards look after people on busy beaches.
Their community safety teams and education volunteers help explain the risks and share safety knowledge with anyone at risk of drowning.
Their international teams work with partners to help tackle drowning in communities at risk all around the world and thousands of RNLI volunteer fundraisers help to support their lifesaving work.
