The RNLI was actually founded as the Royal National Institution for the Preservation of Lives and Property from Shipwreck in 1824. Thirty years later in 1854, the name was changed to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution - the RNLI - as known today. The RNLI is a charity founded upon and driven by their values of selflessness, courage, dependability and trustworthiness, with volunteers at its heart. Values shared by generations of supporters who have powered its lifesaving work through kindness and generosity for almost 200 years. Volunteers make up 95% of the organisation - ordinary people doing extraordinary things - supported by expert staff, all working together to help communities at home and abroad save lives.
