Why help?

We rely on seafarers, the key workers of the sea, to keep our cupboards stocked and world trade turning.

Seafarers face extreme weather, the threat of piracy and intense loneliness every day of their nine-12 month contracts. The pandemic and global lockdowns have added to these stresses, with crews around the world stuck at sea, some for up to 17 months, unsure of when or how they will get home, while hundreds of thousands of others have been left unable to work.

This is putting intolerable strain on seafarers’ mental health and finances, and we’ve seen an increase in calls for help.

How you'll be helping

Your funds will help us continue our vital work, such as:

  • dedicated 24-7 helplines for seafarers and their families
  • face-to-face and virtual chaplaincy and welfare support
  • training and support to help seafarers manage their mental health and wellbeing
