In addition to Seafarers UK’s wider grant funding programme, the charity is currently focusing in particular on four core areas of need: the Fishing community, the ‘Future’ and those training for a career at sea, the ‘Family’ and the dependants of seafarers, as well as working seafarers. You can learn more, below, about how you can support these key areas of need and in particular the various projects that are being supported through our funding in these areas.
In 2018, our grant funding of £2.5m supported over 60 maritime organisations with 73 grants awarded to help seafarers in need and their families. But we couldn’t have done it without your support. See the impact your donations have made last year to seafarers in need and their families.
