About us

Seafarers UK is a charity that has been helping people in the maritime community for over 100 years, by providing vital support to seafarers in need and their families.

We do 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. In 2019, we awarded 53 grants totalling £2.2m to 43 maritime welfare charities.

Supporting more than 209,000 people with vital funding

Last year, our grant funding programme provided essential support to 43 organisations.
