Evaluation of a programme created to provide RNLI staff and volunteers with support after potentially traumatic incidents.

Key findings:

  • Research participants felt that the TRiM programme had delivered real benefits, and that such a service was definitely needed within the RNLI.
  • Both survey respondents and case study participants felt that support services were more likely to be available since TRiM's introduction.
  • The success of the programme was underpinned by the dedication of TRiM managers, the peer-to-peer connections created by participants, the provision of confidential peer support, and the thoroughness of the programme's training.
