    New lifeboat fund launched

    By Jonathan Brown on August 11, 2017

    New lifeboat fund launched

    A new £1m support fund has been launched to support the work of lifeboats across the country.

    Helping to save lives

    Lifeboat charities are now being urged to bid for part of the fund, which has been made available by the ‘Inshore and inland rescue boat grant scheme’.

    It can be used to buy lifesaving equipment like boats, life jackets and safety gear.

    Maritime Minister John Hayes said: “The additional funds provided by the scheme will ensure that these tireless volunteers and charities can get the boats, equipment and other resources they need to provide round-the-clock lifesaving services.”

    Helped over 80 charities

    The scheme has been running since 2014 and has made a big difference to local rescue services.

    It has helped over 80 charities to make our waterways safer.

    Portsmouth and Southsea Voluntary Lifeguards used the fund to buy a new lifeboat. The boat was used to save the lives of those on board two vessels off the coast of Portsmouth.

    The scheme is being run with advice from the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Royal Yachting Association and devolved administrations.

    Charities have until September 6 to submit their bids to the Department for Transport.
