Seafarers

Seafarers UK

Seafarers UK has been helping people in the maritime community for 100 years, by providing vital support to seafarers in need and their families, and to those in education or training who are preparing to work or serve at sea. We do this this by giving grants to organisations and projects that make a real difference to people’s lives, across the Merchant Navy, Fishing Fleets, Royal Navy and Royal Marines.

Last year we gave grants totalling £2.5 million to over 70 maritime welfare charities. Seafarers UK receives no government funding and is heavily dependent on public donations and legacies to maintain its grant-making.

Shipwrecked Mariners' Society - Supporting the seafaring community for over 175 years

Founded in 1839 the Shipwrecked Mariners’ Society provides financial help to merchant seafarers, fishermen and their dependants suffering hardship and distress. We pay an immediate grant to the widow of a serving seafarer who dies, whether death occurs at sea or ashore. Regular grants are paid to former seafarers, their widows and partners, whose circumstances justify on-going support. Special grants are made to meet particular needs in crisis situations. Practical assistance is given to seafarers of any nationality shipwrecked on the coast of the British Isles. In the last year we made grant payments of £1.4 million in over 2,200 cases of need.
