Volunteering is at the heart of what we do. The very foundation of the NSRI is built upon people who have – and still do –donate their time, effort and energy to the job of saving lives on South African waters.

We know that going out to sea is not for everyone, but there are so many other ways of getting involved. Whether it is joining as a rescue volunteer, or a survival swimming instructor, becoming a shore controller, a coastwatcher or a fundraiser, there is a volunteer option for everyone. We hope you will join our family in whatever way you can to support our work
