Volunteer Commitment at RNLI

Our charity is made up of 95% volunteers – ordinary people, doing extraordinary things! At the heart of our volunteer ethos is the Volunteer Commitment, which is a statement of the hopes and expectations between the RNLI and volunteers.

THE RNLI WILL:

  • carry out its activities in accordance with the RNLI's Purpose, Vision and Values
  • create a welcoming environment where everyone is treated equally, fairly and with respect
  • provide you with appropriate training, opportunities and equipment for your volunteer role
  • give guidance and support your development in your volunteer role
  • ensure you are volunteering in a safe environment so far as is reasonably practicable
  • listen to your concerns if things aren't going well
  • recognise that you are a volunteer and have other commitments
  • be inclusive and value everyone for their individual contribution
  • respect people's views, interests and uniqueness
  • comply with agreed standards, policies and processes
  • not tolerate disrespectful behaviour towards each other, supporters or members of the public.


IN RETURN WE ASK YOU TO:

  • carry out your volunteering activities, as agreed, in accordance with the RNLI's Purpose, Vision and Values
  • promote a welcoming environment and treat everybody equally, fairly and with respect
  • respect people's views, interests and uniqueness
