RNLI Jersey is a highly trained team of volunteers operating from two lifeboat stations (St Helier and St Catherine's) in Jersey, Channel Islands. During the summer months we are supported by our paid lifeguards who patrol Jersey's western beaches.
We are part of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution which operates across the UK, Channel Islands and Republic of Ireland and which is made up primarily of volunteers united by selflessness, skill and courage.
