DO NOT REPORT AN EMERGENCY INCIDENT HERE. DIAL 999 AND ASK FOR THE COASTGUARD

Welcome to Newhaven Coastguards Website.

Newhaven is a search and cliff rescue team of twelve volunteers available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year,  who respond immediately to maritime and cliff incidents.

 In an emergency, the teams are tasked by means of pagers direct from Dover Coastguard, and can be at scene of an incident anywhere within their area of responsibility within minutes.

Newhaven Coastguards operational area is from Brighton Marina to the River Cuckmere. 

The team will often assist the flank stations at Shoreham and Birling Gap. We can also be tasked inland to help with flooding, searches and inland cliff rescues. 

We work closely with Newhaven and Brighton Lifeboats as well as the local emergency services. 

Other resources available to us are Coastguard Rescue Helicopter 104 from Lee-On-Solent, and Coastguard Rescue Helicopter 163 from Lydd
