Coastguard is the charity saving lives at sea. We are manned at the sharp end by over 2,200 trained volunteers, on call 24/7.
We train and equip volunteer rescue crews so they can respond to marine emergencies, giving them the skills needed to provide first aid, navigate in difficult conditions, work as a team and bring people home safely.
At least 76 people would have lost their lives had Coastguard not responded to their calls for help last year. Thousands more get home safely because we respond quickly and professionally.
