Assisting with visitors who have mobility issues and socialising, co-ordinating between the crew room, coxswain and shop manager to ensure smooth running. Once assistants are familiar with the talk and local knowledge, they would be asked to give talks about Dungeness RNLI at 'off site' adult meetings and cover adult visits at the station if required.

Dungeness Lifeboat Station in Kent guards the Channel from Folkestone to Rye Bay and was the first to receive the RNLI Shannon class lifeboat. The Morrell was named on 31 May 2014 by HRH The Princess Royal.
The station has a rich history, in 1940, the Dungeness lifeboat was one of 19 that took part in the evacuation of Allied troops from Dunkirk in northern France. Through the 1950s the station was famous for its Lady Launchers - local women who helped haul the lifeboat down to the sea, and recover her.
