Now recruiting trainee crew with availability in the working day.

Sidmouth Lifeboat is a fully self-funded independent lifeboat in East Devon, covering an area of approximately 150 square miles of sea between Axmouth and Budleigh Salterton.

We are on service 24 hours a day, 365 days per year and all crew members are volunteers.

100% of money raised is used to keep the boat maintained and crew trained and equipped.

Sidmouth Lifeboat is not part of, or funded by the RNLI, although we do have close links with the RNLI through the nature of our work. Sidmouth Lifeboat is funded entirely by the community in and around the Sid Valley and friends of Sidmouth Lifeboat from further away who also give so generously .
