Trained and Trusted


Trained and Trusted examines the 50-year history of the student-led coastal rescue services set up at UWC Atlantic College on the Bristol Channel in Wales. Drawing on extensive first person accounts of life-saving work, which often took place in perilous circumstances, this book examines the ambition behind rescue services – to build moral resilience on the basis of the universal human desire to help those in need.


This history of youth-led sea rescue also considers what teenagers are able to accomplish if we let them. What risks can adults allow teenagers in their care to undertake? And what responsibilities is it fair to give them?
