Impact during COVID-19

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on merchant seafarers, fishers and their families, Seafarers UK has created a new Seafarers UK COVID-19 Emergency Fund of £2 million, with grants being awarded immediately to charity partners providing advice and support for individual seafarers affected by the widespread coronavirus impacts.

The emergency funding is in addition to Seafarers UK’s existing annual budget of £2 million grants to support delivery partner organisations, with over £1m committed over the first four months of the lockdown period. Learn more about the Fund and see how our grant funding has supported seafarers and their families affected by the pandemic, below.

With your help

we can continue providing support for seafarers and their families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
